The wonderful and amazing Catherine Newell advocates for her son and recently discussed growing up, sexual awareness and sensory seeking with regard to her son Axel who is the same age as Dylan.
Masturbation and sexual awareness has been a potential issue which I have been aware of but not really known with where to start. Catherine’s Facebook post https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FCatherineNewellAndAutism%2Fposts%2F1192091697523942%3A0&width=500“>here is a great start for all ages. It’s never to early to start generating awareness and understanding about changing bodies and maintaining personal safety for those with different levels of understanding.
I’m a nurse; I don’t even blush anymore. I’m seriously impressed and a bit amazed at the level of detail required for this post- But it is so needed! So many of these factors I had not even thought about but am realising quickly that I need to.
