In brief: Uncertain

The previous comment was no! i would like to make sure that your question relates to autism spectrum disorder vs acute stress disorder, etc before answering in order to give the best information.
I see both types of disorders in my practice. If it is autism, the answer does depend on where it falls in the spectrum and would require a much more in depth answer.
