Many parents of toddlers worry about their children taking their clothes off. Not only is public nudity frowned upon after infancy, but diaperless children who are not potty-trained can cause a horrible mess. As children grow older, there can also be serious consequences to public nudity, ranging from problems in school to angry responses from parents of other children. In most cases, autistic children remove their clothes because they're uncomfortable. This can be the case even if you've carefully selected soft, all-natural fabrics and checked for obvious issues such as sticky diapers, pins, and outgrown shoes. That's because many children with autism have sensory challenges that make them more likely than their typical peers to react strongly to physical sensations.

My 10yr old autistic son has made great progress this year, getting a bit more verbal and finally out of pull ups, but this week he woke up early in the morning and spent two hours playing around his room and peeing on the TV! Up until now, he had no problem waiting until he got up to properly use the toilet. We played back the recording of the event we have a camera in his room and he would pee on the TV, then get some clothing out of his drawers and attempted to clean it up. He repeated this about 10 times within 2 hours before I heard him and investigated.

Jonathan, bedwetting doesn't have anything to do with autism. Lots of NT kids are bedwetters. I went to school with one and I woke nearly every morning to the smell of urine in my room.
