      Tourette syndrome (TS) is a common neurodevelopmental condition affecting approximately 1% of children and young people (c. 70,000 people age 7–17 years in England) which if untreated has a major adverse impact on mental health, social functioning and quality of life. Despite the prevalence of TS in young people being greater than diabetes and epilepsy, it remains a frequently misunderstood condition and its seriousness at a population level is typically overlooked, as evidenced by the absence of evidence-based clinical guidelines. TS is characterised by persistent and impairing motor and vocal tics which typically emerge in childhood, run a waxing and waning course and carry on into adult life in about 30% of young people. Tics can be highly stigmatising, especially for teenagers, and often lead to bullying, peer victimisation, social exclusion, depression and self-harm. TS is associated and frequently coexists with other neurodevelopmental and mental health conditions including ADHD (60%), anxiety disorder (40%), OCD (30%) and ASD (20%) which add to the complexity of clinical management. Evidence from this major systematic review and meta-analysis shows that clinically effective treatments for tics in children and young people exist and include medication (e.g. α2-noradrenergic agonists and antipsychotics) and behavioural interventions, including exposure and response prevention, habit reversal training (HRT) and the comprehensive behavioural intervention for tics programme which combines psychoeducation with HRT. The results of this review suggest that both medication and behavioural interventions have similar efficacy (moderate effect size) in treating tics, with behavioural interventions having a more favourable adverse effect profile. When considering medication, the more favourable adverse effect profile of α2-noradrenergic agonists suggests that these agents should be offered before antipsychotics. However, psychoeducation and behavioural interventions are generally the preferred treatment option, particularly as first-line interventions, by young people and their parents. Despite demonstrated efficacy, access in most healthcare systems to evidence-based behavioural interventions for tics is extremely poor. Therefore, given the healthcare challenge of delivering behavioural interventions at scale with existing numbers of therapists and the traditional model of face-to-face delivery there is a pressing need to develop and evaluate digitally delivered interventions for young people with tics using a stepped-care model of therapist support.
