Overly focusing on objects close to face while making noises and walking around in circles
Does this topic sound familiar to anyone? My son starting "Zooming" around age 2. That's our families pet name for this. My son is now 8 and zooming is a daily thing. Zooming consists of holding an object up very close to his face. Looking very intensely at it. He usually makes sounds like car crashing noises. With his other hand he makes a fist and moves it back and forth.
He usually starts zooming after school and then again during homework breaks and before bed. He can usually control when to Zoom. He will not do it at school for fear of being made fun of. He has been diagnosed with Tourettes Syndrome, Aspergers, Adhd, and many more. The diagnosis depends on which doctor I go to. I'm done with doctors. He only goes to OT and focuses on his sensory issues.
He is highly intelligent but unable to focus on independent tasks. (IEP for school) He is a risk taker and is sensory seeking, a picky eater, whiney, picky about clothes, germs and would love to stay home with me everyday if I let him. Does anyone else have a child with similar symptoms. And if you were to meet him, you would never know any of this to look at him. totally normal looking. Whatever normal is. Thanks, Busy mom
