You have really covered the bases at two Universities and getting him to all the various specialists.   Maybe someone can diagnose it as he gets older or maybe it might just go away.  Do any of the specialists have anything at all to tell you?  Maybe someone on here will have a clue for you.  Sorry that I can't help you.
