I'm not actually the parent but our whole family is at our wits end with my little brother. He's got autism but its the high-functioning kind I think its called. He's very possesive of his mother and constantly has "thoughts" as he calls them of her dieing. He also gets "thoughts" when any of his family talk to any child his own age and getting aggresive to the child. He is possesive of his friends and constatly has "thoughts" that two of his friends are better friends to eachother and dont need him. He refuses to talk in therapy and refuses to go anymore. 
We've tried positive renfocment and trying to ease any fears but nothing works. He has also admitted to pretending to be ill mutliple times at night just so his dad and mother dont have sex which has mortified us all. What do we do?!
Hi, I understand that this is a difficult and troubling situation. It sounds like he's currently having a difficult time and is worrying about many different things. We would suggest that you and your family continue to support and reassure him as these kinds of thoughts are difficult to combat and try your best to convince him to go back to therapy. You may find it helpful to contact the National Autistic Society on 0808 800 4104. If you feel you need further support please e-mail us at or call our freephone helpline on 0808 800 2222.
