Not a parent, but I would think as soon as they are able to tell time.

We had a clock from the time we could tell time (around 6 I think).  If he wants one I would let him have it.  Some kids have a hard time switching from on activity to the next without warning.  He may like knowing what’s coming and how long it is until the next activity.  There are plenty of wall clocks with no lights, so he wouldn’t be bothered at night.

I’m pretty sure I had a clock in my room since early elementary school.  Probably around 1st grade or so.

Since he has Asperger’s, a clock might actually help him realize what time he needs to get up and get ready for things instead of doing it as soon as possible and waiting around.  You can tell him that you’re doing something at 3pm and he can see for himself how far away that is.

My son has been obsessed with clocks since pre-school.  My boys have had at least one in their room since my oldest was 4. No digital clocks, however, just good ole’ analog ones.

What about a small travel alarm clock that runs on batteries? You could leave it in when he is struggling and needs that added help of knowing what’s coming next, but it’s easy to remove if he becomes so focused on it that it becomes an issue.
