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; https://www.autismparentingmagazine.com/autism-stimming-causes-management-and-types The article explains; What stimming is and how to recognise 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.
