how can i help my son get rid of his nervous tics?

he has ASD so i know it's related. he is always doing something. if it's not one thing it's another. blinking excessively, looking out of the corner of his eyes, pushing air out his lungs or making some kind of sound or something...any suggestions?

  • You may want to have him evaluated by a neurologist; my friend's son had similar issues, was misdiagnosed several times before a neurologist determined that he had Tourettes syndrome.

  • maybe getting him side tracked might help ??
    or talk to him about it see if you can work with him on stopping it ?
