Im not sure where to post this but would really appreciate advice.
I have 2 daughters 8 and 6. My eldest daughter has asd and was diagnosed at 6 yo
Recently my youngest daughters behavior has changed.
Dd 6 has always been a perfect child, polite, very attentive, hit milestones early just a dream. In the past few months dd has started soiling her pants pe.es and po.ops when she had been fully toilet trained since 3yo. She also had started qetting the bed at night which she hasnt done in a long time now wearing pullups to bed and still saturating the bed (ive tried restricting fluids in the evening) she isnt just po.oping... when she soils her pants she puts it EVERYWHERE and does it anywhere (even in the local public pool)
Her behavior had also completely changed she has complete meltdowns over very very minor things that would never have bothered her. She has also become very abusive towards me hitting swearing.
I took her to the doctors and the gp saif probably constipation (i dont think so, im an rn and it doesnt at all appear to be constipation)
Hes ordered xrays and ultrasounds
But what about the behavior??
Hes doesnt even seem concerned that this is completely no my usual child.
Im now beginning to wonder if this may be autism.
She was a very social child as a toddler but now keeps to herself.
Can anyone please give me some advice.
Im really struggling with the behaviours from both my children recently .
Nothing in their routine, life etc has changed or happened.
