JJOJ, what type of tests would you suggest? I am wondering at the age of 2, if he doesn't have any other behavioral problems, this may go away. If he was older or if he had other problems, he could take the Yale Children's Global Stress Index. There is also the WAIS and other tests for ADHD and such. But, like I said, a toddler picking up bad language may be normal and paying attention to it would just be reinforcing the behavior.

My DS, who has TS, never started out with the cursing and the cursing tics never lasted. Other children I worked with never started with the cursing either.

Karen, keep us posted on his development. My DD, the youngest, told me as an adult, what her brother tricked her into doing to get her into trouble. Siblings are like that. LOL
