SUSPECTED autism in toddler

I have a child im my toddler room who is showing severe autism or adhd signs and im having alot of trouble not being able to help them. She spends 50% of the day screaming and crying with zero way to comfort her, he likes quite space's which is very difficult in childcare but we try our best to give them that. When she is not crying she is in her own world and doesn't interact with any teachers or children, she also doesn't respond to her name being called or anyone talking to her even if we tap her in the shoulder. She has alot of comfort things such as putting her hand in her pants and sucking on palm. I just think she's not enjoying her time here and she isn't gaining anything, I want to be able to help her but I honestly don't know what to do and its getting me flustered.

Thanks in advance

Have you spoken to the Director about your concerns?

Have you taken observations of the child's behaviour?

Have you spoken to the family about the child's behaviour at home?
