Autistic kids crave water


A good read here 0n

Water is a magnet for all children.  It is fun.  It is soothing.  Water is the ultimate, non-threatening hug.  As an adult, what is your reaction when you sink into a hot bath?  Or sip a cool glass of water on a hot day?   Aaaaaahhhhhhh.  Exactly.  Now magnify that attraction and that reaction by 100 and you’ll know exactly what an autistic child feels like when they are immersed in water.
