he sounds quite high functioning if he is on the autism spectrum and if he is doing 'stimmy' things but still functioning well at school then perhaps you should just look at dietary intervention which makes an awesome difference in children on the spectrum....toe walking and stimmy behaviours all improving...one of the sites you can go and have a look is www.breakingtheviciouscycle.com - a diet many families have found helpful. i hope this helps.
