Planet Puberty is a new platform developed to support parents of young autistic people.

It covers a wide range of topics, giving parents the information and support they need to tackle puberty! They also include links to picture books, flashcards and resources to help them.


The website covers a wide array of topics in great detail and with accompanying resources. The types of topics included are:

  • The Body (body changes, periods, penises, breasts and growing taller to name just a few topics)
  • Feeling good (positive self images, mood swings, masturbation and more)
  • Relationships (communication, consent, feelings, friends and dating)
  • Identity (positive self image, gender and sexuality, LGBTIQ)
  • Keeping safe (consent, cyber safety, safe people, personal space, decision making and social media are a good start)

Online Workshops

These include parent only topics like masturbation, periods, managing mood changes and wet dreams and erections.
