IDK either. I know ADHD and Autistic are all on the same sort of wave although also different.

It's better to think of ways to distract and engage her into doing something that's totally distracting when something like that is happening.

I know it'd be great if she could learn to cope with these things but I think that's why you're there...because she cant learn to do that and she needs the supervision to help her avoid these things.

I'm not a doctor so I've no way of really knowing what to do in this situation...Maybe Becky would be better to talk to about this? She has Autistic son. He's older than your girl at work though.
