it's my contention that autism is not a totally 'invisible' disease.
although less noticeable than the differences seen in downies, there's a number of things in appearance and in motion that i've noticed in other autists and myself and also heard documented, such as:

-disproportionately large cranium/brain/forehead
-neoteny (appearing younger than chronological age would imply)
-bad posture (hunched shoulders)
-joint hypermobility (e.g
 -fingers bend back like bananas)
-mouth breathing
-awkward gait
-clumsy/poor eye-hand coordination
-serious or expressionless face
-low muscle tone

-assymetrical face?
-narrow palate?
-far-set eyes?
-thin upper lip?
-deep-set eyes?
-bushy brows?
-more?

and then there's the less inherent factors, like:
-scruffy hair
-poor or odd fashion sense
-yellow teeth and long nails due to bad hygiene
-glasses

I have had or do have 100% of those except the hygiene things

I'm athletic now and don't mouth breathe, which has changed. I still have a strange gait and arm position
