- Teach the child to do something that will help him take charge of his tic. For example, if he bites his nails and he learns to identify triggers such as being nervous before an exam, teach him to put his hands in his pockets, or clench his fists as soon as he feels he’s under stress.
- Try strengthening the child’s social support network and exposing him to situations that can lead to the tic resurfacing, without letting him act it out. This is called desensitization.
