My daughters autistic brother is ruining her life. I'm so sad for her.

Those weighted blankets are very expensive and some autistic children can’t function without them. I’m not sticking up for his behavior, but it sounds like his parents are doing a lot for him. He’s in therapy every day of the week. That’s quite a lot and very expensive. I have 2 autistic children and can’t afford that. Honestly it sounds like you have made no attempt to understand the struggles of being around this child. Some kids self-harm, have massive melt downs. They have a lack of understanding of others emotions. It really has to be something that is taught. For what it sounds like this boys autism is severe and the parents are doing the best they can.
