My sisters daughter
Hi mu sister has a little girl called beth she is 4 years old - my sister is struggling to get a diagnosis or anyone to take her seriously. Beth mimics her younger sister Becca 2 years literally - if Becca crawls in the floor so does Beth,if Becca shouts out so does Beth and this can go on for hours.She mimics televison advert repeatedly, says phrases over and over again.She is still in nappies as she doesn't seem to understand when she needs to go to toilet.She gets upset if hair blows in her face almost like its painful for her.My sister brushes her hair (the back)and Beth will fall over backwards. She has repetitive behaviour - my sister says its like groundhog day each day - in the morning Beth will have the same conversation every morning word for word..She will put a mouthful of food in her mouth followed by another and another.Obsessed with food - has one meal and is asking about the next straight away.
She will go to a shop and Beth will say goodbye to the shop assistant the assistant will say goodbye then Beth will say it again and if the lady doesnt say it again she will get upset and start screaming and crying.The other day she was in a shop when a little boy got excited and started jumping up and down talking to his mum , she copied this exactly jumping up and down repeating what he had said to HIS mum??
Please does anyone have any ideas??
