 v.— «Not all kids that stim have autism. Most often stimming is sensory-related thing. Does your child receive sensory integration therapy at all?

We use the Floortime method when stimming is interfering with Maddie’s learning or engagement.» —“Re: Feedback, please! Stimming? Perseveration? By any other name?” by Donna Duffey Usenet: bit.listserv.down-syn Feb. 11, 2003. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
