My daughter suffered brain damage at birth(hemmorhage) grade four. She is 4.5 years old and her twin is developing normally. my daughter has a shunt, hydrocephalus and seizure disorder. She has always been mouthing things, hitting, biting and pinching and sometimes screams-"I WANT cereal" She is often hungry, has limited attention-except elmo and occasional books and singing. The school says she behaves very well and does not exhibit these behaviors. Although a week after her last seizure on 3/24 she bit a boy in her class. She got bit the day before.
we are at our wits end because our entire weekends are spent getting bit and pinched and hit. She has been through so much we hate to discipline her. Sometimes we yell, sometimes, ignore her, reward her etc...I know she is expressing frustration-her communication skills are delayed as is her walking, but can this be biological. any advice on what to do and what type of Doc to see? No-one seems to have any answers. They just say you need to reward her when she is good. but we do that and she still bites. the only time she doesn't is when she eats-which is constantly. Also when she plays she seems to be more calm. but then she'll get bored and throw her toy. She doesn't realize it can hurt someone. I will also say she is watched over by the babysitter as well as myself and wife practically all day. ALOT of attention. if we leave her alone she'll tear the lace apart. Upon waking in the morning she has this one toy that she plays with nicely and quietly for about an hour.
