AUTISM--SENSORY RELATED QUESTION
I noticed my daughter was different when she would start to cry and throw a tantrum when another child would though I thought it was because she was empathetic. i als noticed her covering her ears with other loud-ish sounding things like the blender, lawnmower, vacuum but figured that most people would react that way as well. My question regarding sensory though is more as to being desensitized to pain mechanisms such as eating really spicy food (loved my habanero BBQ flavored almonds), not noticing when she scratched herself and broke skin and was bleeding or falling, etc. Should I take her to a neurologist or which doctor do I take her to in order to check this out??
Question 2: Did you get your ASD child genetically tested to see if her symptoms were related to something else that mimmicked autism related mannerisms?
