At out wits end with our 4 year old daughter. She is an adorable wee thing but has been diagnosed with Autism. However, it's her behaviour that is our main concern and no one will listen. From not sleeping, to perpetual screaming, destruction, eating every kind of non food, e.g. her car seat, foam, crayons ( and swallowing ). we just can't get a minute to breathe! Today she has been awake since 4.45am, has no intention of having a nap, has cut her fringe off, eaten a felt tip pen ( which she used on the walls and her body beforehand ). We barely take our eyes off her for a second yet she seems to find time and find the often up very high confiscations such as felt tips, scissors etc. Her older sisters are also at their wits end. My daughter ( I'm Nana) just shouts now and can't seem to stay calm and that worries me too. Any advice?
