accepted the neurotypical way of doing things to make it easier for non-autistic
people to understand us, interact with us. Despite some progress there is still
very little reciprocity.

pleasure from human contact. Fortunately, as they get older, the majority learn
not only to accept physical contact but even to enjoy it. It may surprise people
who think of autism inevitably ...
