Hello everyone! I have a 6 year old son on the spectrum. Rated "moderatly severe" lately hes been doing what I can only call masturbating. He plays with himself, actually gets an erection. He is starting to "hump" things andjust never stop touching himself. I know that sexuality and things like this need to be handled delicately, I am at a loss. He'll do this anywhere, including in stores or infront of company. I am afraid that if I dont find a way to stop it he will one day get himself in trouble doing it. I have not heard anything about it from his teacher so I dont think he does it in school, at any rate, has anyone else been through this o know what to do?? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!
