My son has not had this problem, however, he has been assulted by anther kid when he was 12.
Ever since then he has a fear of growing up . my son is now 16yrs old and has a diagnoses of autistic disorder.
The main priority that I like to make clear is the safety of the younger child, or any very young children, your grandson may come into contact with. This is a very scary and dangerous situation for little children to be around your grandson.
I would advise therapy for him , he is high functioning , and since he has already been taught NOT to do this behavior , and still does it, he needs professional help. I write this in the best interest of your grandson in hopes that his behavior will be curtailed before any further incidents occur.
He can be criminally held liable , despite his disability. Because he is high functioning and if he knows right from wrong. This is why it is extremely important for him to recieve professional help. And to keep him well supervised , & away from very young children.
