When DD arrives home from Grandparents house (which she enjoys but there is no speech due to Selective Mutism) - she will immediately lie down on soft rug and wrap a blanket around herself. She will do things like proceed to lick us, chew edge of her cardigan and then remove her clothes, down to her underwear, occasionally naked in the past!

She is being assessed for ASD...do u recognise this as ASD behaviours at all. Anyone experienced similar.

It certainly sounds like sensory processing issues, which a huge % of people with Autism have. Of course, you can have sensory processing issues without having autism
