Wanting some advice...I have a 14 year old student with autism, intellectual impairment and is non-verbal. He used to be bitey and aggressive - but because he has grown up a bit is now huggy and affectionate to teachers he knows and works with. I know that it is not age-appropriate and that perhaps he should not hug at school - but I have issues with age-appropriateness (considering developmental age rather than chronological age) and just think a hug is part of his way of communicating. But am also aware that as he gets older it may be a problem. Anyone with thoughts or expeiences to add?
