Science Daily: Link discovered between touch of individuals with autism, their social difficulties

I attribute much of Rob’s improvement to the sensory integration therapy we did with him. He was highly tactilely defensive and did not seem to have a good sense of where his body ended. I am frustrated that sensory integration therapy was for many years dismissed by some in the autism community as another quack therapy, because they didn’t understand why it worked. Now they are documenting the neural processes that connect touch, social difficulty, and autism.
