Our 19 year old son is on the autism spectrum and also has general anxiety disorder. Within the last few months hygiene has not been a priority (showers, washing his hair, trimming his nails). He is not bothered by any of these things and up until now no one has said anything directly to him (other than me or my husband). While I want to prevent him from the pain of having someone making a nasty comment, I know that that might be the only thing that motivates him. Any suggestions?
