`` One thing I notice which I have seldom heard mentioned.
This is that autistic people don't enjoy physical contact with others -- for instance, my children and I.
When I hold my son he stiffens his whole body in my arms until he is as straight and stiff as a board.
He pushes and straightens himself as if he can't stand the feeling of being held.
Physical contact is uncomfortable for him ''!!
