Hi, my son is 9 years old and we have

Hi, my son is 9 years old and we have noticed over the last several years he is very hyperactive and does some repetitive movements and things. Some of his norms are being loud a lot, energetic, beating drums on the table, clapping (out of excitement), nail biting, he’s made up some of his own coded words he will say sometimes ( he still makes sense just changed up the words for what seems like fun). The big one I started noticing last year is he outlines his fingers on one hand with a finger from his other hand a lot. Daily and throughout the day. He does get headaches to the point of throwing up 1-2 times every two months of so but that might be unrelated. He’s got a little bit of a harder time making friends too. Besides this he’s smart, gets good grades,athletic, desires to do well in school, has a good kind heart, good at conversations etc. Does this sound like ADHD? Stereotypes? I’m just not sure. And I am going to get testing for him.
