twittles her fingers. She has always twittled her fingers (rolling her wrists while wiggling her fingers). The twittling I believe she got from me and my side of the family, but we usually did it while playing with a toy or looking at something exciting. She'll rock and twittle while "daydreaming" (in public no less) with no toys or while looking at anything in particular. She "appears" autisticlike when she does this. What do you think? She is a good learner and the most social of my four offspring. I believe dh is an Aspie and his sister admits she is, so it is in the family tree.
I realize you're not psychiatrists, but you live with it everyday and most of you have probably seen professionals that have guided you. When I mentioned Aspergers to a psych some years ago he asked me what it was LOL.
I know what it is like to raise a nonNT child, my ds21 is ADHD/LD. I've had my challenges, embarrasments, and frustrations dealing with that, but he's grown now and succeeding at his goals :o) Now I worry about dd8 doing this in public and dealing with the looks/questions I expect we'll start getting.
P.S. We homeschool, so I don't need to worry about what goes on out of my sight under judgemental eyes.
