  • All I know is that some kids with autism do that and autism can be misdiagnosed with ADHD. In autism, I think it's a sensory thing. Don't know how to treat it but if it's sensory I think a substitute like putty or something that can give him a similar sensation may help.

  • I think this is pretty normal behavior from a three year old. I think it is too early, and possibly very detrimental, to label a little child with a term like ADHD.
