he has verbal and motor tics that cause him to make noises, blurt out words, or engage in
actions such as finger tapping, neck stretching, twirling, and eye blinking. Other children
make fun of David. David says this makes him feel sad and lonely. David himself has
trouble with his handwriting and paying attention for long. The teachers have indicated
