Looks at me and hits his head

by Linda

Every time I'm in sight of our 12year old grandson,who has brain damage from anoxia at birth,he hits himself hard in the forehead with disgust. It started out when I would clear my throat, now he does it even if he,s in the rear seat of the van and regardless of what I do soundlessly. He's lived. With us practically his whole life and this has been going on now for 3-4years. I don't know what to do to give him relief and it is depressing me. Any suggestions?
