What Makes Ryan Tick?: A Family's Triumph Over Tourette Syndrome and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Front Cover
Hope Press, 1996 - 305 pages
An update to Susan Hughes acclaimed Ryan, A Mothers Story of her Hyperactive/Tourette Syndrome child. It covers the very difficult adolescent years - a period when he had to be placed in a residential treatment facility - and the subsequent period of returning home and pursuing a normal life following an excellent response to the right combination of medication, family and school support. This is a hair-raising and heart rendering story that should be read by everyone who has ever interacted with a difficult child.
