I'm really having a tough time getting my 8yr old w/ Aspergers to keep his hands OFF everyone. I explain and remind a zillion times a day. Ideas?
Well, I'll give you an idea that works for others but didn't work for my son all the time. I explained that we should keep an arms length apart. To imagine that everyone has a bubble around them and we don't want to pop that bubble. So then he would walk around with his arms in front up him "popping people's bubble". I laugh every time I picture him doing it. BUT, it might help your child if you want to try since it's worked for others.

I also did some research and found this from Prospering with Aspergers and it mentions in the book , shown on the left, Dr. Jed E. Baker provides a helpful exercise called:
“Don’t Be a Space Invader.”
