Tourette Syndrome “Plus” (TS+) [added 12/4/00]
Leslie E. Packer’s home page is an interesting, nicely written and well-designed web site which includes extensive topical glossaries (e.g., neur/psych, edu/advoc), and separate sections on common TS-related issues (e.g., obsessive-compulsive, attention-deficit, mood disorders, “rage attacks,” behavior problems, school daze?, and more). The list of upcoming conferences is especially noteworthy. Unfortunately, there is no explanation of the author’s background and expertise – a reason to be cautious.
