Can someone help with separation anxiety in an 11-year old with ASD high-functioning? I asked her what are some things that could help her stay calm when my husband and I are away for three days, but she says "I don't know" and then she starts crying and getting anxious and just talks about it everyday and then cries again. What can I do to help break this anxiety cycle and help her to stay calm while I'm gone? I asked her if a picture of me and her would help and she says no and starts crying. She's fine during the day without me, it is just at night to get her to sleep and stay asleep without crying and being anxious. TIA! :)
