Don't know where to turn

Hi, I have a 11 year old daughter who has never been dignosed with anything other than Developmental Delay, I have taken her to numerous doctors and had numerous tests done and all the tests come back ok. My main problem is her behavior when she is out. When she is up in the morning for school she is happy and anxious for the bus to get her, but everyday on the way to school she will take her pants off and sometimes her shirt. She is on a handicapped bus and she is almost 1 1/2 away from school, I just haven't figured out why she does this. I love her more than life itself but I have a 13 year old, and a 2 year old with one due in August and the stress of his is hurting me physically and mentally. If anyone could help me out in why she feels the need to take her clothes off in public or on the bus,please leave comments. She is a good girl in school and most of the time at home, this mainly happens when we go out or on the school bus.


She is also non verbal

Thank You
