Journal of Intellectual and Developmental Disability, v28 n2 p112-21 Jun 2003

Four core categories emerged: turbulent sensory perceptual experiences; coping mechanisms; enjoyable sensory perceptual experiences; and awareness of being different, suggesting they experienced distress and enjoyment from sensory perceptual experiences.
