Is it normal for my 8 year old autistic son to play with his penis? He only does it in his bed under the covers in the privacy of his bedroom . He also likes to play with my daughter's ken dolls that don't have any doll clothes on. Any answers would be appreciated. Thank You, debirises64
What is hard is that if my 8 year old does it---- I say knock it off. Harder with an autistic child to do this. In reality, this is a problem with kids on the spectrum as discussed with our occupational therapist. I would talk to your intervention team about the problem to help get ideas on how to curtail it. good luck
