my daughter is autistic and is in her fourties, she has off and on picked the skin
on her fingers until they bleeds. she do this when i am not looking.

we took her out to a family reunion and everyone hugged her. I took her on the
playground to swing and have some fun she looked as if she was enjoying her self'

we had plenty of food to eat, and it was the kind of food she likes, but by time we
came home i noticed she picked the healed skin off of her finger.

Sometimes I just cry when no one is around. I her to church and everyone is nice
to her there, if no one is looking again she will began to pick her fingers.

I have to watch her at night before she goes to bed to make sure she going to sleep. etc., etc,. etc,.....

You need to contact a lawyer that specializes in Disability cases to see what he or she can tell you about what you can do to get SSI for your child. My friend's son had it until he was 18 years old for a genetic disorder he has. But that does not mean you will get it for your child. It depends on a lot of things.
