We have a 16 year old son with autism who likes to bite when angry. There is no particular pattern which starts this aggression. We have tried to provide him towels, soft toys, soft balls to bite to satisfy this urge, however, it does not stop till he has bit caregiver's skin. We are looking for suggestions to change this behavior.Answer Question

Don't know how much this will help but if you push into him as he bites he can not bite down. I don't mean to shove but to not jerk away. Natural instinct is to pull away from a bite and that is when biter pressure comes in. If you lean in or push towards his mouth the pressure will be broken it is physically impossible to bite if this pressure is applied. I have not explained well pm me if need help and I will try to be more clear.
