Hello! My daughter is 8 years old and has severe Autism. She is very picky with food, and also loves to eat! Lol. For the most part she's a very happy girl. She does have some behavioral issues. When upset and not able to express to you what's wrong she will hit herself in the face, head, or leg. She hits very hard and needs to be redirected. She does have a small vocabulary when it comes to speaking. She says "May I have...." and will tell you, foods, the bathroom, her swing, etc. She also has a device which she uses to talk as well. She is potty trained during the day, but wears pull ups at night. She does need help wiping and reminding to wash her hands. She needs lots of cuing when it comes to doing a lot of things. Such as using a napkin, using her utensils, washing her hands, drying them... etc. I'm sure u get my point :). Additional needs include light housekeeping, meal prep, having a reliable car and being comfortable with pets. Family Age Groups: Youth. Diagnosis: Autism Spectrum Disorder, Autism, Developmental Delays, Speech Delay, ADHD.
