Article: Autism Stimming, Hand Flapping and Other Self Stimulatory Behaviors

By Gbollard @gbollard
Autism Parenting Magazine is has a new article on Stimming that is pretty comprehensive and ticks all of the right boxes (I checked it over). 
Head over here to read it;
The article explains; 
  • What stimming is and how to recognize it. 
  • What causes stimming (or why autistic people stim)
  • It goes through various forms of stimming including;
    • Verbal and Auditory
    • Visual
    • Tactile
    • Vestibular
    • Olfactory (Smell) and Taste
The article also discusses whether you should attempt to stop stimming (this is one of reasons why I wanted to check it over first) and some techniques to reduce and self regulate stimming. 
There's a great infographic for easy reference and a free guide that you can download.
