Thanks for replying so quickly. She also picks at her skin on her face and has pulled her eyebrows. Her ADHD coach and therapist has her using playdo for the picking which is helping, the eating is another thing that has popped up. It seems it is always something;. We recently went through NeuroPsych testing for a complete diagnosis of any other co-existing conditions. We will have all results in the next couple of weeks. We have talked about when and why she eats and she admits, like the picking, it is when she is anxious. I was just curious if eating/overeating, especially sugar is a common behavior seen and any suggestions of how to help address it.
