I have a son that has asperger syndrome, seizures and tourrette syndrome. He also has senory intergration disoder. He tells me and others do not touch me it feels like someone has set his skin on fire when he walks down a crowded hallway. He changes classes a few minutes early to keep this form happeneing.Light touches are worse. I can touch him with a firm but not hard touch. It has to be just right. alot of people with autism scream when people try to touch them.But some don't talk so adults don't know why they scream. It hurts.
