My 8yr old autistic daughter won't sit down on the bus?

autistic says it all!! the bus driver picks her up right in front of our house. apparently she unbuckles and jumps from seat to seat! even over the seats!! she has enough autism to be on the spectrum but is functional. she's about 3/4 her age and i think she uses her autism to get what she wants? i... show more autistic says it all!! the bus driver picks her up right in front of our house. apparently she unbuckles and jumps from seat to seat! even over the seats!!

she has enough autism to be on the spectrum but is functional. she's about 3/4 her age and i think she uses her autism to get what she wants?

i don't know!! she doesn't speak that much but understands a lot!

what can i do? she's kind of a typically developing child!! has anyone had problems with keeping their kids' bottoms in their seats on the bus? how did you resolve it?
