My daughter maddie who is now bout to be 7 has been doing these weird habits I guess you can call it ever since age 3 we noticed it but at first she would only do it when she would be off playing alone in her own lil world if she would line all the blocks up in a row perfectly she would get happy an excited an would stretch her arms out an tence them up like she was straining r Somthing u could see it in her face cause she make a face also fence it up while making grunting noises now she does it all the Time a lot more now she also walks an runs on her tipi toes all the time and like at school she is in a normal class' an everything cause she is a normal kid but also does these lil habits in school and it's like she is scared cause even when teacher asks her maddie do u have to go to the bathroom instead of a simple yes r no she jus says um um um almost like she is scared she is Gonna get in trouble even when I ask her to go complete a tasks she can't half the time shed rather not do it then at leat try to do it like shes scared to do it wrong an get in trouble I guess. I don't know what to do somthimes r how to handle it somthimes cause I don't wanna make it worse r scare her worse then already is. Then other times she is happy as can be but so far dr. Gave her some med to take every nite an I'm gonna get second opinion frm another dr just to be safe an for now there calling it stereotypical movements an behaviors and expressive speech delay. It's more along the lines of the autism family r catagory. So if anyone has an opinion r story r info that might help I would love to hear what y'all think.
