Is it typical for a child with autisim tend to be more curious and display very inappropriate behavior? Almost to the point of force and touching.

Children with autism are likely to have more difficulties learning what types of interactions and touching are appropriate and under which conditions. I recommend that you work with your child's service providers to develop a plan to target this behavior. You did not specify whether your child is touching himself or someone else, but I recommend that you supervise him closely to avoid inappropriate contact with others.
