Looking for Advice. As well as having an Autistic son myself my friends daughter has Autism too. She is 10 and really struggling. She doesn't go to bed until the early hours of the morning. She gets out of the house and runs out into the road sometimes saying she wants to die. She cellotapes her eyes and mouth shut saying now she can't eat and drink any more. She struggles going into school but is okay once in. I am thinking as my son is struggling too and he is 10, but not struggling on the same scale that it maybe hormone related but could she be experiencing Autistic Burnout?
