    Girls and ASD can be tricky. They are often diagnosed late, if at all because of their ability to "hide" the symptoms. But I wouldn't think you would have such a rapid, sudden change like that. It would have been more gradual.
    Honestly, my first thought would be an event. It's known that children who are abused (I don't just mean sexually, it could be anything and come from anyone incl a bully at school) can often start smearing faeces, lose bladder and bowel control etc. Its a means of self protection I would say but I do know it can be common.
    I'm not an expert on either topic, I have a son with ASD and a daughter we were considering having assessed for a while but have put on hold. I also know someone (friend of a friend) who had an abused child who did the poo smearing. So take all of what I said as anecdotal and not an expert assessment by any means.

    Hi Hun id definitely speak to a physchologist who specialises in paediatrics as it definitely sounds like a behavioural 'thing' - as others have mentioned potentially for attention or maybe something has been going on that you're not quite aware of. It definitely doesn't sound like ASD but get it checked out as something is causing her behaviour and she's trying to 'control' what she can. Big hugs as it sounds like you have your hands full!
