Where did you get that idea from? I used to work in a school which had autistic kids, and they had perfectly normal conversations with me.

I just told you, I've had normal conversations with many of them. They're odd people, but conversation is not none of the things they have trouble with. As your link talks about how to encourage eye contact, perhaps the ones I met were brought up properly.

YOUR link says you can train them to make normal eye contact. Clearly either that's happened, or it's a load of bollocks about them not making eye contact, because they ALL spoke to me in a completely normal way.

Training Austistics to make eye contact has to be taught and normally by a specialist.

Autistic children all get specialists. And the teachers they got were not mainstream teachers, but ones trained for difficult children.

I find someone looking me straight in the eye very annoying. It's a sign of nosiness or impatience. They ask me a question, then stare directly into my eyes, indicating to me that they're annoyed I haven't answered yet.

Looking people eye to eye is akin to touching someone's hair. It's personal vs. being standoffish or impersonal.

Looking someone in the eye conveys confidence and belief in what they are saying. I have little respect for people who won't. If they won't look you in the eye, they will stab you in the back.

Someone who avoids eye contact altogether is someone to be wary of, but if they stare directly into your eyes all the time, and they're not asking you for sex, there's something very very wrong with them.
