As I am a caregiver I cannot release name age or location, but I need help, I have an adult female consumer that I serve and one of her biggest target behaviors for decrease is vomiting and spitting. I would love to help her become more socially active and help her decrease this very socially unacceptable behavior. Ideas anyone?

Ignoring the behavior does not seem to be working, and sometimes it just comes out of nowhere and redirection is impossible. I feel like she's hyposensitive orally,or it could be 100% attention seeking, but I'm at a loss. I know she is capable and smart, low functioning on the spectrum but I see lots of potential in her. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks,
