If she is receiving medication to control her inappropriate behavior, there are several others to chose from. If you are not able to adapt to her bizarre behavior, then maybe the approach shouldbe to get her into a residence for peple with severe PDD. Visitation can the take place without a total shut off.

We are looking into the idea of a facility but that is a long-term process. I guess what I am asking is what can we do now until we find a place for her. Do you have any other medication ideas (we have gone through several) that you have seen are more effective for "melt-downs" or is there some strategy or med that can quickly stop a specific explosive episode? We would welcome "getting unstuck" strategies. Attempts to be cheerful or ignore her or continue to search for the trigger haven't been much help. Is there a good methodology that you have seen works for getting people to move-on with activities, even temporarily?
