Whats wrong with my son

My son has problems with his motor skills. He is 5 years old and was recently diagnosed with ADHD. No treatment as of yet. His teacher is worried it may be neurological. He has difficulties eating, troubles holding a pencil correctly, troubles in his computer class because he has problems using the mouse and also troubles in PE. As a baby I had no problems except his excessive sweating when he sleeps which still continues. He has had several head injuries as a baby and is continually always seems to be injuring his head. He had testing in Head Start and they had him wear a weighted vest. Not sure if that ever helped. Socially he is a loner but enjoys trying to get attention by being negative. What is wrong with my son?

It is not clear, but without doubt he displays some developmental lags that invite evaluation. Talk with his pediatrician and arrange an evaluation with a developmental pediatrician or with a developmental team (including pediatrician, psychologist, speech/language therapist, physical therapist, occupational therapist, psychiatrist).
