My child has aspergers and ocd hes 13. Very smart, funny, and people love him. In the past year hes had trouble. He learned about puberty and how the body changes in school. I thought it would be good for him. It has back fired in my face. He has become obsessed by it. To the point he has involved younger kids in the family. Just looking and a little touching. We have taken steps to correct this. We contacted his therapist, cps, and police. And he is never out of our site now. Im worried. What does this mean? Im hoping the change in his medicine, increase of therapy, and home schooling will help. Has anyone else gone through this? Does anyone have advise?
