my ds diagnosed with pdd-nos at 18 months is now 2 1/2 and has been covering his ears for about 6 weeks. it started out slowly but now he does it so often. he can do it for any reason. he could wake up and do it, he can be playing and do it he can be smiling and happy and do it. when i try to take his hands down he freaks out. i had his ears, teeth checked and nothing.
last night he went to bed by 9:30 woke up at 12:30 and stayed up until 4:00 am with his ears covered. when i looked at him b/f he woke up he was in the same position.
i am totally freaking out and am considering a cat scan ( but have to talk to neurologist first) any body out there have this happen to their child?
