Hi I need help, my daughter is 13 autistic with severe learning difficulties. She has always had random Rages but this last week she is having them everyday and quite aggressive. I see incontinence service as she won't poo and also seeing camhs, who all want me to give her picot sulphate which we have tried before with no affect except when on highest dose she had the runs. At my wits end as feel a prisoner in my own home cos scared of her kicking off when we go out so having to take endless holidays from work, she should be in holiday club but Dare not take her as it's not catered for learning difficulties. Oh forgot to mention she is non verbal. Any help or advice would be so much appreciated. Thanks
