Take her to the ER : Or to her pediatrician and let them know of your observations ( privately ).They will need to examine her.

Play Therapy: Odd is a very generalized description of the child's presentation. Provide a clearer picture of the pre-morbid and current behavior, including the family's background information for a treatment roadmap to be formulated on the first visit. Also, has the father been inquired with? There may have been other things that occured during the visit that may lead to the change other than abuse.
