Separation Anxiety! Any Advice?
My youngest has severe autism and he has spd too. He's 4 yrs old. He's also non verbal, no words at all. He still has extremely bad separation anxiety. I can't even leave a room without him following me and forget it if I leave the house. It's a full blown meltdown until I get home. He doesn't do it to anyone else, just me. He's also a huge mama boy and literally wants me 10000% of the time. Any suggestions to ease his separation anxiety. We've tried telling him beforehand I'm leaving, we've tried doing pecs with him- telling a story of me leaving, we've tried letting him have a picture of me when I'm gone. Any other suggestions? Thank you.
