Today’s #autchat is about stimming: Repeatedly doing things like rocking, hand-flapping, fidgeting.

Not only autistic/similarly neurodivergent people stim, and not all autistic/similarly ND people stim, but it’s common.

More about stimming (research by an autistic self-advocate): #AutChat

Q1: Do you stim? If so, what are some stims that you do? If you use toys or objects to stim, feel free to recommend/link. #AutChat

Q4: If other people have negative reactions to your stimming, how do you deal with that? #AutChat
