Confused

Hello I have a 2 1/2 year old son that has been doing these weird movements for almost a year now and I can't seem to figure out what is going on with him. He is a normal lil boy plays, fights, cries, etc... but he has been doing this weird side to side movement of his head and twitches his body while looking up or around, sometime will focus on nothing in the air and will laugh loudly or smile to himself. He always has this blank stare when he is going through this. His eyes are wide open and so is his mouth. When I'm able to I record him without him knowing i do because he gets very mad when he sees me recording him. I've showed his dr but haven't had no testings done beside a eeg. Does anyone know of a place/program that can help me figure this out. Thanks

PANDAS
by: Anonymous

You should have your child tested for Strep. He may have PANDAS- a neurological manifestation of a strep infection. You need to do a blood test, not a throat swab.

Have you been to a neurologist? Does he do these movements when excited or watching tv - it could be a complex motor stereotypy - have a look at some you tube vids of kids doing these movements & see if yours is similar. Good luck

Go to early intervention
by: Anonymous

I would look up an early intervention place in your city and have him evaluated or if you have something through a local university. In nm we have a place called ECEP that does evaluations. I went through early intervention at 18 months and found out my son had SPD. We received OT through them until 3.
