Stimming and Autism: What May Be Causing It and How You Might Help
Stimming, or self-stimulatory behavior can help a person to regulate themselves. It can help them “tune out” other input when they are overstimulated or make them more comfortable by providing extra input if they are understimulated. It can help regulate intense emotions. Some believe that even things like headbanging serve a purpose by releasing endorphins, the chemicals our body produces to help us relieve pain. Learn more about what may be causing stimming and how you can help.

The hosts know how to help you deal with autism! It will change your life if you take their advice!
People with autism don’t need to be cured or treated. They need to be accepted and loved. The idea that autistic individuals need to be “healed” is harmful.
It’s like the hosts are girlfriends of mine and know all of the things that go through my mind. I’ve never felt so connected to people I’ve never met. I’m so happy to have found this podcast.
