My granddaughter at a very young age, toddler would do an unusual thing. She is now seven and is very bright and advanced in her ability to read and all school work.
What she will do, usually when very excited. She will look off open her mouth, flap her arms just a little bit, then open and close her hands. When I ask her why she does this, she says it makes her feel better. She will also do this using the computer or when she is really excited.
She is also a very picky eater. Rarely will she try new food.
My concern is that as she becomes older she will be made fun of by other children. This little condition is not interrupting her ability at school, again she is on the bright side and in gifted classes.
She is very social. Very creative in acting, singing, playing, dancing.
Her parents are not concerned. Just seem to accept it.
Should we get her evaluated or what?
