kissing and smelling shoes
« on: Monday, April 30, 2012, 01:00:13 PM »
My son has high functioning autism. He’s 12. Yesterday, he walked up to his classroom teacher, bent over, kissed her shoes and then smelled them. The teacher was so shocked that she burst into tears. He’d done this to other women before, but I thought it had stopped. He said he knew it was wrong to do it, but he couldn’t control himself.

I know this sounds odd, but maybe you should start a shoe collection (and anything else he loves to kiss and smell) for your son. I know a parent whose autistic son loves tall female boots, so she went shopping and now he has a closet-full of them. He seems satisfied to smell and kiss just those boots!

Well, it sounds like your son understood that it's wrong to do this. So I think it's a problem of behavior modification. Maybe you have to talk with his teachers and other people around him to make sure everyone is using the same behavior rules.
