Hi all,
DD has some additional needs (age 5) and is being assessed for ASD.
I feel she may have some OCD traits too.

Wanting me to lift the toilet lid if down, as she doesn't want to touch it. Occasionally uses her feet to open it.

Will insist on her drink bottle being closed in car.

I placed a bottle of soy sauce on dining table when we were having stir fry and the lid was open. She got extremely worked up about it and firmly insisted it was closed.

She recently spilt porridge on the seat pad of her chair at the table. They are detachable with Velcro and she now always removes the seat pad before she sits down - so she's just sitting on the hard seat.

She stressed out yesterday about the feel of crumbs on her seat and started climbing/stood up on the table.

She has a slight attachment to stones, shells etc.

She is anxious around visitors, and when Grandparents came over, she went into overdrive, wouldn't stop moving and I turned around and she's made this arrangement, as per photo attached!

Wonder if it is all just anxiety related, ASD, OCD? Any similar experiences?!

DD also removed her clothes when we got home yesterday and lay on soft rug. I guess quite sensory.
