  • Hi Kimberleyalice,

    One question: do you have a behaviour therapist working with him?  Biting is quite common.  It's signifying something - quite probably anxiety (is he biting himself, or others?)  Also, he may be hypersensitive to certain fabrics or materials, which is why he doesn't like the nappies.  I work with autistic adults, and many of them have such issues.  One of them refuses to wear any form of underwear.

    Have a look here and see if there's anything that can help you...
