stim
 v.— «Not all kids that stim have autism. Most often stimming is sensory-related thing. Does your child receive sensory integration therapy at all? It’s been my experience that if you take away the stim object, they either become very frustrated (and undesirable behaviors result) or just find something else to stim. We use the Floortime method when stimming is interfering with Maddie’s learning or engagement.» —“Re: Feedback, please! Stimming? Perseveration?
