English term or phrase: pinprick tests
Besides sensitivity to sound, as previously noted, ASD often involves insensitivity to pain, even to a burning stove (Gillberg & Coleman, 1992), while on the other hand there may be an overreaction to stimuli, so that even light to moderate touches are painful. Pinprick tests are usually normal. Children with autism have been described as “stiff to hold,” and one of the earliest signs reported by mothers is an aversion to being touched (Gillberg & Coleman, 1992). Abnormal sensation in the extremities and mouth are common. Toe-walking is frequently seen. Oral sensitivity often results in feeding difficulties (Gillberg & Coleman, 1992, p.31). Autistic children frequently have vestibular impairments and difficulty orienting themselves in space (Grandin, 1996; Ornitz, 1987).

Explanation:
Los neurólogos exploran la sensibilidad con un instrumento que tiene una escobilla en un extemo y un alfiler en el otro. Con la escobilla comprueban si la sensibilidad tactil del enfermo está íntegra y con el alfiler, dand pequeños toques (con el paciente con los ojos cerrados, de forma que no sepa cuándo le van a pinchar) exploran la sensibilidad dolorosa en diferentes partes del cuerpo.
No se debe decir algo como prueba o test del alfiler, sino "la sensibilidad dolorosa (estimulación con alfiler) es genralmente normal".

Evidentemente se trata de un test en el que se espera una respuesta luego de pinchar la piel.

estimulación con alfiler


Explanation:
No estoy de acuerdo en absoluto. No se trata de estimular, sino de efectuar una prueba para comprobar si hay una determinada reacción ante una determinada acción.
