It is defiantly time to find a clinician who is highly educated and experienced in aspersers/spectrum issues who has a major portion of his/her practice involving this.
PDD is a common misdiagnosis for girls because they are such good actresses and often mask the innate social skills deficit that is key to a spectrum diagnosis.

As you know stress can be a trigger for seizers so if there is a predisposition being on the spectrum can cause the situation to be more acute, particularly if the individual have gone undiagnosed and unsupported (clinically) past early childhood.

Both your children need to be evaluated by a competent clinician so they can get the proper supports.

It may not be possible to differentiate between stims and mild secures until you have gotten the spectrum stresses under control since they can both be triggered by stress.
