Just found out that my son has autism that smelling is a big one. We my husband and i have always made it a game. He is only five but smelling was never very important to me it was other things. I hope this help Lore My son (13) has to smell everything he will get very upset if he cannot find any shake and vac in a shop, he also smells not so nice things, but is obsessed with perfumes/scents of any kind. : Hi it seems as if this is a wonderful board. My son is 9 mild to moderate autism diagnosed at 6 His latest thing is smells he can't tolerate the smell of lettuce(I didn't even realize had a smell!) we had a salad luncheon at church today and he went and sat in the far corner. He also can't handle the smell ofHe onions and he WILL NOT go in Bath and Body works (One of my favorite stores.) He has had sound issues for years certain sounds he can't tolerate which I know is typical but has anyone else experienced the smell issue?
