How to Respond to Challenging Behavior

Hello, We have a 40 yrs old mainly non-verbal male client, intellectual impairment/dual diagnosis who is Spitting.
When going out he will spit a lot in the car and at the carer.
Spits on changeover of carers, mostly on his shirt but sometimes at carers and people.
It appears at times attention seeking behaviour or anxious/excited about something, his way of communicating..
What would be a way to handle this behaviour..?
any thoughts would be appreciated.
