Re: child's excessive blinking, TICS?
At 5 years old, my DGS was diagnosed with ADHD. Around that time, he started excessive blinking. The therapist told them it was a Tic, but to ignore it. Don't tell him to stop, don't mention that he's doing it. Eventually, it stopped on it's own, and now at 6, his behavior is much better and it seems that he is growing out of the ADHD. Because of his behavior problems, he was having a bad time at Pre School and I think that was causing him anxiety. He didn't want to go because he was afraid of getting yelled at. He was very fearful of starting kindergarten for the same reason, but kindergarten is going very well. He's so good that he's almost teacher's pet! LOL
