Ok, so I'm a huge enemy of labels on children and drugs, both pharmacuetical or otherwise. So I may have an autistic one, an ADD one, ADHD, bi-polar, you name it; I don't recognize it. That point being said I am looking for a bit of "all natural" advice.:)
DS 9 has always been a bit odd. Here's the rundown, basically by ages and stages.
3-4 lots of blinking( I didn't think anything of it, all boys in my family have an eye blinking thing, my dad even had to tape his eyes open for my wedding due to it's degenerative effects)
4-8 phases of pretending to wrap a belt around, finger twirls, arm movements, stutter stepping, so forth (these are involuntary movements he says he just feels like he needs to do)
9 now we have audible noises, currently a hooting like an owl, or a german ch or hawk a loogie sound.
We currently work on acknowledgement (to know when he's doing it) and control. Any other natural help out there. Now that it's turned audio i'm worried about him being in baseball this summer.
Please no pharmacuetical advice here, when I want a doctor's opinion, I'll ask mine . . .lol
