13 year old CP child with episodes of side to side head shaking/eyes rolling up

My son is 13 years old with cerebral palsy and seizure disorder.  He began having seizures at six months of age.   When he was much younger (maybe 3 or 4 years old), his eyes would roll back and he would shake his head bac k and forth (as if to say no).  It would happen sporadically and the doctor could never figure out what was going on.  These "episodes" went away but have returned within the last month to six weeks.  He does this only when sitting up and they happen at all times of the day.   I have video'd these episodes and the neurologist doesnt think it's a seizure.  He thinks it is a behavioral thing.  Has anyone seen this, heard of it, any suggestions?
