I am pretty sure that my rabbit has it. And she doesn't like, make noise...Now I am going to be wondering all night about tourettes and deafness. Thanks a lot, I was hoping to get an early night ;)
Yes, deaf people can have tourettes. If they can speak they suffer the same speech afflictions. However, if they are non-verbal they make random sounds and suffer from the same twitches as most people with tourettes.I work with a group of handicapped kids during the school year and I've met two kids who are profoundly deaf along with tourettes.They are great kids. Even when they are ticking.
