Some children on the spectrum have very low muscle tone and are kind of floppy. Not all, my son is very muscular and his fine motor skills are great. But every child seems to have a different combination of a 1,000 pieces of the puzzle.

My son has the floppy muscle tone and very poor fine motor skills. OT believes him to be tactile hyposensitive so this impacts handwriting.
There really are so many variations on the spectrum. As a teacher of special ed, I went to a lot of workshops and this is literally what I took away as the only absolute in the world of autism:
Every child on the spectrum is unique.
At each workshop, I swear it was like the presenter thought they had discovered something new when they would utter these words! LOL
