My 33 Year Old Son Has Severe Autism And Is Severely Mentally Challenged. All Of A Sudden He Has Become Obsessed With Masturbating.

A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

Before he would occasionally (actually seldom) masturbate but now he does it all day, every day. Not sure what is going on and why this has changed. I am baffled. He is extremely low functioning and totally non-verbal. He does not know what he is doing or can be inappropriate. He would not understand even if I explained it to him. He has the cognitive comprehension of a 2-year old child in most areas.

I would talk to an ASD-knowledgable therapist, if you can.
