I also have a pincher and we have to wear certain sleeves so they don't grab at our skin and leave bruises. We redirect them with fidget toys, slime, or a stress ball. This student does not get attention when they do start the pinching, but when they are calm, we give them hugs. It is hard to redirect, but it does take time.

One option is to give the student something different to pinch, such as play-dough or a stress ball or a stuffed animal. If this doesn't help the issue, I would work to provide incentive for appropriate behavior. Praise the student when they are not pinching others.

I agree with this. It sounds like this student wants a specific form of sensory input, so giving them manipulatives would be a good start to stopping this.

In my ASD unit we have a pincher and we have to wear certain sleeves that are of a stronger fabric that way that student can't really grab our skin. When the student is pinching, we redirect by ignoring the pinching and not saying "ouch" or anything at all. With this student we give them play-doh or slime or fun fidget toys to get them to stop pinching so much.

I would try and give him a small toy that he could stim with to help redirect that energy, but physical contact with others cannot ever be acceptable.
