My daughter is 2 she has SPD and she is now starting to harm herself! Biting till she bleeds :/ then she says it wasn't her that did it? I'm very concerned, she also has been looking at her hands alot ? Staring at them and moving her fingers!? Is this a normal SPD behavior?

Thank you so much! Her therapist gave me things to do heavy lifting and work but when she is in the zone it's hard to get her out! I got her some sensory biting things, they should be here by tomorrow! I have a feeling it's more then just sensory, but no one else seems to see my concerns :/

Thank u :))) she also bangs her head! She often twirls, hand starring, rocking! Her anxiety is terrible! If things change we don't hear the end of it! I read a book and started the journal when she first got an o.t she also has a therapist he sees her once a week, he thinks it is her diet, gluten dairy she has never been able too poop been on laxatives since birth!! Three times a day, he thinks she's somewhere on the spectrum but he isn't sure :/ she is very advanced! Can draw letters but not circles or lines ? I wonder... I'll have to check out that board, but her o.t says it's just sensory and that's why when I first looked it up it seemed to match autism I'm so lost!!! Thank u though!!
