A stim is a way that some people with autism express themselves and find comfort. Stimming can include activities like flapping hands, rocking back and forth, or repeating certain sounds or words. It's important to understand that stimming is a natural and unique part of who they are. However, stimming is frequently misunderstood by others who may not be familiar with autism. They may think it's strange or try to stop it, not realizing that it helps children with autism feel calm and happy. Remember, embracing and accepting stims is a way to support and celebrate the beautiful diversity of every child.
