11 year old with a vocal tic, ADHD and ODD

Hi everyone, hope your all enjoying the weather? I have an 11 year old son with ADHD and ODD and hes recently been diagnosed with a vocal tic (clearing his throat) much to his frustration. Its getting worse and hes finding it very difficult to deal with. I hate that i can't take it away for him. We have an appointment with his consultant tomorrow to discuss a way forward. He already struggles socially and has no friends, this is not helping his situation and its heartbreaking.
