Sometimes The Boy doesn’t talk to people.  He’d rather make noises.  Like squawks.  He squawks a lot when he is feeling nervous around someone who he knows.  With strangers he is usually quiet and hides under my shirt.  But sometimes when he is feeling happy and silly he squawks at strangers too.

Turns out, others on the autism spectrum also squawk

I found this video that sums it up fairly well.
