OK, my son is 10, he has aspergers, he can't tell when he needs to blow his nose. It is sooo gross. He walks around with a big yellow bubble in his nose, and then when we do convince him to blow, he blows once or twice and thinks he's solved the problem. He doesn't get blowing until his nose is clear. The kids at school tell him to blow his nose, we do it at home. I have made rules like he must blow his nose before he leaves the classroom and as he comes back in, but it just doesn't seem to work.

Help

How do I get him to blow his nose?

Haha....Hi there, my names Michelle.....I have a 6 year old with Autism and a 13 year old with what I know now to be undiagnosed Aspergers.....and....he will not blow his nose either. But, instead of walking around with the bubble on his nose...he just snorkles it back down his throat constantly....it makes me so sick.
I have been telling him for years...blow your nose....blow your nose....blow your nose....
Actually, most personal hygiene matters are a struggle for him for some reason.
Just doesn't seem to register.
