First off,my son has moderate autism. he's 9,almost 10
He has this friend at school,Drew,who is always hanging on him. Hugging him,trying to hold his hand,basically getting in his personal space. The school has already told Drew to keep his hands to himself. When they've had playdates,I have had to tell Drew to leave him alone. His mom doesn't say anything. My son is not one for touching people.Drew's mom claims he's neuro-typical,but his actions say otherwise.
Do you think its normal for a boy of 9 1/2 to hug and want to hold hands with another boy?

I don't know about normal for each person, but I've never witnessed a child like that with another. Obviously he is not getting the no touch rule. I would lessen their play dates, or even stop till you feel otherwise.
