It is so important to be able to beat their peers to the point. As a parent, you want to be the one in charge of having the puberty and sexuality talk with your son and Travis will teach you how to do that in this great book.Here is an excerpt from the book. "It is also important when you are teaching sexuality and puberty to someone with autism that you use real pictures and provide real examples. Do not show them a picture of a cartoon or anything like that because it is not going to go as deep in detail. People with autism need to see the real thing so they know what things look like and they need to hear about the real wordage that our society uses to describe sex. You should never be afraid to talk about the slang words because a person with autism might get bullied like I did if they do not know and understand the real words of sexuality and puberty."
