This paper uses confirmatory factor analysis to assess the hypothesis that tactile defensiveness in children with ASD can be separated into two distinct factors based on whether stimulation is initiated by the child or by external sources. Model fit was good using standard fit measures, suggesting that the level of control over stimuli should be considered when addressing functioning in daily life.
