My daughter is 2 1/2 right now and whenever I tell her no or she doesn't get her way, I have recently caught her biting herself. It was even so bad once that it left bite marks in her arm. What can I do about this or what is the best way to make her understand that she should love her self and not to do that? Please note: My daughter is in the process of being checked for Aspergers and is on her Final evaluation. She already sees 3 disibility specialist. I have tried to show her to give her self a hug or blow kisses to self in the mirror, but now when she hits herself or bites herself she will do it for a few seconds and then look at me and laugh and then hug herself and say love. Any suggestions?

Ignore it and see what happens my daughter bites herself as well as bangs her head just for attention
