Help for son: You need to raise this issue at your child's iep meeting and ask them to develop a behavioral program to help teach him what is and isn't appropriate touching. It is critical to teach him now. The school is responsible for providing transition services that will help your child post high school and this is a crucial problem.

An IEP: Request an IEP meeting in writing so that accommodations are provided by school to safeguard. Talk to pediatrician about a referral to a child psychiatrist. Take care
