Yes, I let my son stim. Got a problem with that?!

ImageIt’s been quite the journey the last few years since his diagnosis. He’s had some therapy. Like Social Skills to learn how to cope with everyday challenges. But as far as stimming, I let him have at it!

Why would you do that? Why not make him more “normal” acting. Well, for me his stimming is good, it helps him to deal with his anxieties. And honestly, if it annoys you, that’s just too bad. I like to see my son happy. And if he stands out as different, that’s ok. Because being like everyone else is just boring!!!

So, next time you see someone rocking, flapping, pacing, or anything that looks odd to you, if you don’t like it, then just don’t look!
