Self-stimulatory behavior is known as stimming in the ASD treatment community. Examples of this are hand flapping, head banging, rocking, repetitive speech (echolalia) and even screaming. While there isn’t a full consensus as to why stimming is so prevalent among people with Autism, but the widely held belief is that it’s done as an act of self-soothing to self-regulate feelings of anxiety, fear, anger, or excitement.

Come hear from Kelly Londenberg, an autistic adult and licensed pediatric occupational therapy assistant working in a school-based setting about stimming from a sensory perspective.
