9 month old baby with tremors...need help?

Hi Everyone, I have a  9 month old son who has since month 3-4 been having possible motor ticks.  I am a special needs teacher so I recognize it when I see it.  Has anyone ever expereinced this.  I asked my peditrician and she didn't seemed to concerned about it.  Today for example it seemed like he had about 5 tremors.  His body would shake.  He is a happy little boy,  makes great eye contact, and has kept up and met all his milestones.   Please any experience, and or suggestions moms please.  I'm a first time Mom, and if my son needs help/services I would like to get them for him.
