my granddaughter is 11 yrs old. She has bouts of just pacing and eractic twisting her hands and talking to tiny little toys as if creating a lifelike creations for them. She has to have all the littlest pet shop toys and collects all of them and sits playing and talking to them and jumping and making faces...She cannot have a conversation on a mental level of a 8 yr old . She will only discuss animals and pets. During conversations she makes faces and rings her hands, picks at her nails till they bleed and when you hug her she won't hug you back . She is an A student in school..Her body is developing much faster than her mental ..Please does anyone know where I can get a good doctor for her...She really needs to be checked out. Her parents don't want to. They know her behavior is not normal. \
