Our daughter is 22 yrs old; she was only recently diagnosed with ASD; our biggest challenges presently with her, she also has developmental delays/special needs, include battles over foods (extremely picky and narrow choices) and wanting constant outside activities with friends, but in both continous confrontations, she is self-injurious after the activities are over. We are burning out as these behaviors have been constant for over 1 year now. Then we learned about behavior therapy and are nervous but worn out and needing HELP! Please let us know what your experiences have been and what to watch for etc.
