If he wants something, he will....

    AUTISM TODDLERS

    I have a 2 year nephew that is currently going thru autism testing. When his parents lay him down for sleeping he rocks back and forth on his crib sheets until he rubs his forehead raw. He always has sores on his forehead. They've tried using bandaids but he manages to pull off the bandaids and put them in his mouth. Any suggestions?
