My 3 1/2 years daughter banging her head every time she listens to music or watch cartoon since she was 2 years old. her doctor said it's not seriouse and she's using this to draw your attention so ignore her however I feel it started to be involunteerely. Do I need professional help from a Psychiatrist?

Hi I have a 3 1/2 old daughter who has been evaluated and was told she has sencory deficiancies. And speech delay she always head bangs or rocks when music is playing or before bed time the neuro told me its a way to calm her self . Now she is almost four she still head bangs not as much and she is caught up on her speech.

I would seek professional help. 3 year olds don't normally bang their heads like that. If you as a mother feel like it's something that needs to be evaluated, go with your gut and have her seen by someone.
