Why Do Kids with Autism Stim?: Temple Grandin: “‘Stims’ is short for self-stimulatory behaviors, behaviors most people exhibit. We might twirl our hair or tap a pencil – that’s stimming. The difference between acceptable stims and those we consider inappropriate is in the type and intense repetition of the stims.”
