Admittedly, I haven't heard of this being used with a child this young, but I know some who teacher teens with AU will sometimes use this "private" activity as a reward for completing tasks (time alone in the bathroom). From their reports, it's done with parent approval and has helped curb inappropriate behaviors and increased on-task behavior (to get the reward). I know you said he's reading above grade level, but I'm not sure if he has a strong understanding of this type of delayed gratification, but it may help him to begin to control some of these impulses when he knows he'll get to do that in a bit, once he finishes a task. The people who have used it with older kids have slowly increased the time required on task before earning the reward.

I thought it was crazy when I first heard it (and one teacher laughingly told me they had a heck of a time deciding on the appropriate pecs pic to use to symbolize the reward activity), but they had great success with this in middle and high school. Don't know if it's an option for you, but it sounds like nothing is as rewarding to him as this activity of his, so if you can use that to your advantage, you might have better luck. (If nothing else, parents could sure try that at home!)

Oh, and I'm assuming you mean his own privates and never someone else's- that, of course, would be extremely inappropriate as a reward!
