My 9 year old autistic daughter is pulling her skin off around her lips and her fingernails. She will do this until her fingers or lips bleed and we are constantly getting calls from the school saying that she needs to be picked up. We are at a loss as to a means of managing this problem. Is there anyone who might have a suggestion how we can incourage her to stop.
