Yes my son is 4.5 years and diagnosed as HFA, he has always had a strange reliance on his sense of smell. His particular thing is to scratch and smell the armpits of his closest adults. I dont know why he does this but I have read that this behaviour is akin to the normal 'stimming' in that it helps them relax.
