Do you mean Tourettes syndrome?Children with this syndrome have repeated unusual movements which they cannot control called tics. They also may suddenly shout odd words or sounds such as hooting, yelping or swearing.This condition can be treated, but your child must be seen by a paediatric neurologist.

I just had a situation with a client who's ten yr old son has Tourettes, we put him on a wholefood supplement for 4 months and not told anyone, not sure it would help. But everyone including his teachers commented on his improvement. I am not here to advertise but I know nutrition may play a part in helping reduce the tics.
