I'm a teacher in an elementary school and I have noticed one of my student's hands trembling. His hands seem to tremble constantly no matter what he's doing. both hands shake. He also seems to stuggle to write as he quickly jerks his hand to make letters. I just wanted to know if this is something that should be of great concern and if there is anything I can do to help.:confused:
