asking permission over and over

i posted a question a little earlier but i left out info that could be helpful in understanding why . i have a 3 year old who is autistic and whenever i give her a sandwich or a drink or just when she wants to rest her feet she will ask if she can. this happens each and everytime. an answer earlier from a lady said it was being smart **** ssss but i dont think so with learning probs. but then like i said i left out the part of my daughter being autistic , she cannot talk really well but i know whats shes asking i just dont understand why she thinks she has to ask permission to eat or drink or sit. could it tie in to her autisim?. she also is 3 ( 4 in dec ) but drs put her about a year to year and a half behind

  • it sounds to me like you already have the answer to your question - autistic children need repetition and set patterns - it helps them to process the information - just know that she does it - and keep giving her permission - no harm in it -
