Saliva
A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

My son has a habit of constantly licking his fingers and then “playing” with his saliva. I haven’t noticed him doing it in specific situations , it’s more of a constant thing throughout the day. Any tips on how to stop this behavior?

How To Stop My 17 Year Old Daughter From Wetting Her Pants In School Only Once A Day.
A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

She stared wetting her pants since last year.. no wetting pants other than the school bus and school. She has been potty trained since she was 8. She is not much verbal.
