Autism: Helping Young Adults with Puberty

Learning about puberty is a rite of passage for all young people. Most of the time it happens right inside the classroom. Teaching puberty can be a tricky task for many families. Topics can get uncomfortable, and both kids and parents might feel embarrassed. But the kids need to learn, and it’s a necessary part of growing up. Many schools have a standard puberty talk with kids when they get close to middle school. It’s at this age that they begin to notice changes in their bodies.
