Try time outs, facing the wall. Loss of privileges, etc. Spanking is quick, and over and done with. A time out, loss of something, not so much. Honestly I would only employ it for my son if he were violent, as he finds he likes spanks as a sensory thing, to know him out of a violent episode. Thankfully he doesn't have anger/violence issues. He does however misbehave on occasion, and thus, consequences.

Have consequences for talking back. Clear ones, that don't change. She may melt-down at first, and it will get worse before it gets better... but most kids with PDD-NOS are high functioning enough to understand acceptable, and unacceptable behaviors.
