Hi there @Gramz 


Thank you for coming to ReachOut to raise your question - it's a common one. It would be good to hear from some parents here who have been through this with their young person. 


I have found some content for you to look at. Raising Children's Network has an extensive collection of resources that are really helpful. Click here to see their information on autism and sexual development - this particular article seems to cover off what you've mentioned here. 


Do you have any support networks within the Autistic community? That could be one way of getting support and tips as well. 


Keen to hear how you go with the links!
