HELP! I have a 9 yr old son with mild autism which effects him mostly socially and his maturity is below age level. he started self-stimulating early on, which is normal for boys, I guess. Eventually stopped, but lately started again and now tries 2 "play" with his younger 4 yr old sister. I have tried telling him that he shouldn't play "those" games with her. She doesn't even realize whats going on and thinks he's just tickling her, etc. He knows I don't allow it and he cries when i catch him doing it, fearing punishment (which i have because trying to ignore by just suggesting a game or separating them hasn't worked). I don't know how to explain it to him and I'm worried...
