  • Do you mean bang her head against objects? Is there anything else that concerns you about her behavior?

  • why would you let it get that far to where she has given herself a concusion? What have you done to try to stop her from hurting herself?

  • Is your child talking yet? Does she make eye contact? Does she turn to you when you call her name? Does she flap hands? Is there other sensory issues like loud noises or bright lights bothering her?
