My daughter's behavior has been concerning. I cant find any clues as to what might be the problem online. So, I'm searching here. She just turned 7.
Here's some of the things she does.
Hides in a panic from every day noises. A car will drive by and next thing I know she's under the table frightened.
While driving she searches for PT cruisers and when she sees one she says "PT cruiser Pt cruiser Bye" Every time. When I asked her not to I could here her wispering it.
Ends every answer with "I guess" or " I dont know I guess" Even if she answered it correctly. Like "is pink your favorite color?" " yeah, I guess.. I dont know. I guess ok mommy?"
has to tell me every thing she does even though I've repeatedly reassured her that she doesnt need to. She tells me when she's going to the bathroom, when she farted, when she itched herself, when she's going to her room to play, ect. She seems uncomfortable performing any actions without telling me first.
She writes her numbers and letters backward sometimes but I've read that's typical.
She plays really well and she's not as shy as she use to be. She'll talk anyone's ear off. She has an amazing memory and seems perfectly fine aside from the things I've listed. I don't know if it's just her personality or if she has a little anxiety or what's going on.
It might be aspbergers, over-sensitivities, or perhaps nothing at all. Have you spoken to a psychologist about it? It's worth doing, especially if you have a good insurance plan that allows you to seek out a specialist w/o getting a primary's recommendation first.
The noise sensitivity also made me think of Asperger's. There's a great movie starring Claire Danes called "Temple Grandin" about a girl with Asperger's or autism. I can't remember. There's lots of stuff you can do to help her if she has it.
