My 9 year old suffers from tics. He has had grunting, sniffing, head nodding, eye twitching. They get worse if he gets stressed and sadly the little guy has had lots of stress to deal with from family and pet bereavements to his sister leaving to go to uni. He is aware of what he does but is unable to control. I tried to get him help with CAMHS but they were trying to treat him as if he were an adult. He is the most sensitive and caring child you could meet and it's heartbreaking to see him suffer. Does anyone have any idea of ways to help him myself?
