Pica-trichophagia quirky weirdo 4 year old

So my four year old has some issues.  She's been four since February and we literally just got her potty trained in the last few weeks.  She chews on her hair (trichophagia) and she picks blanket fuzz and eats it(pica) she "owns" all the toys in the house and if I make her share or take something away from her that my little dd was playing with, she cries inconsolably for hours upon end.  She's also extremely hyperactive, and sometimes can't focus on what I am saying to her if I am inches from her face.  It's like she's looking through me.

also I'd like to mention my son is on the autism spectrum, dxed pdd-nos/ADHD.

im wondering if she could also be on the spectrum.  I might add that a dr has not dxed her with any of the above things those are just my educated guesses. I'm just slowly starting to put all the pieces together.

Possibly.  I would have her checked with your pediatrician, just the same as your son was.  Just to be sure :).  Especially because it seems like her pica isn't controlled and she has these other thigns going on :).  Better to take care of it now rather than later; )

I would take her to a doctor instead of self diagnosing so you can get some real help.

Could be. Definitely worth discussing with your pediatrician.
