Student with behavior issues

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I have a student who is autistic and considered non-verbal. He talks but it is just repetition of others and does not relate to anything specific. His target behavior is tickling. He tries to tickle everyone all the time and he thinks it is funny. He will tickle me, his para as well as the other paras, other students in my classroom and random students in the hallway. We have tried taking away privileges, telling him no, pushing his hand away, and even reading a social story written specifically by our SLP for his issue. Nothing works, he will say "Do not tickle" while laughing and tickling. Many times his tickling will be in very inappropriate places on the body. Does anyone have any ideas on what to do about this problem? It is also causing behavior issues with other students because they will become angry with him.

Can you be more specific and say "keep your hands to yourself" or "do not touch other people"?

Does he like the feeling of tickling or the reaction from others? Would he put his fingers in putty, use some kind of mushy bean bag, or carry a stuffed animal? If he wants attention, could he learn to fist bump or high five others?

We have tried that and he just continues while repeating whatever we say.

I believe that it is attention seeking, however we have tried redirection, specifically with fish bump or high five, he will do it but then tickle right after.
