Where to start for dx?

My son is also 6 years old and has many of the things on the checklist; constant motion, will only eat specific food textures, can't stand tags on his shirts, trouble keeping his hands to himself, sensitive to sounds. He is very bright and learning the concepts in school easily but socially he struggles because he has trouble joining in groups.

Do you recommend starting with the pediatrician? ADHD has been thrown around since he was 4 and, in my heart, I don't feel that he is ADHD. I have had 2 psycholigists tell me that he is not ADHD but they recognize anxiety issues in him. He hates brushing his teeth and the dentist is a cause of great anxiety for him.
