  1. Jett Travolta "Stimming"

    I don't claim to be an autism expert or anything, but I'm familiar with some of the symptoms, such as stimming. Call me crazy, but is that not EXACTLY WHAT JETT IS DOING IN THIS PHOTO?!?!!?

    No, no, no! That's perfectly normal behavior for a 15 year old! You're completely misinterpreting the facts!

    Michael - Stimming - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia It's a way for autistics to deal with their surrounding - it's self-soothing. Different people have different physical manifestations. Some people press their fingertips together, like Jett is doing in that photo. Some people rub their hands together, or flap their arms.

    Re: Jett Travolta "Stimming"

    Stimming is a jargon term for a particular form of stereotypy, a repetitive body movement (often done unconsciously) that self-stimulates one or more senses in a regulated manner. It is shorthand for self-stimulation, and a stereotypy is referred to as stimming under the hypothesis that it has a function related to sensory input.[1] Stereotypy is one of the symptoms listed by the DSM IV for autism and is observed in about 10% of non-autistic young children. Many people with autism do not exhibit stereotypy. Common forms of stereotypy among people with autism include hand flapping, body spinning or rocking, lining up or spinning toys or other objects, echolalia, perseveration, and repeating rote phrases.

    There are many theories about the function of stimming, and the reasons for its increased incidence in autistic people. For hyposensitive people, it may provide needed nervous system arousal, releasing beta-endorphins. For hypersensitive people, it may provide a "norming" effect, allowing the person to control a specific part of their sensorium, and is thus a soothing behavior.[2]
    Stimming - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Stimming is repetitive stereotypic behavior commonly found in autism, but also found in other developmental disabilities.

    This behavior may involve any or all of the senses in various degrees in different individuals. Several examples are listed below.

    * Visual – staring at lights, blinking, gazing at fingers, lining up objects

    * Auditory – tapping fingers, snapping fingers, grunting, humming

    * Smell – smelling objects, sniffing people

    * Taste – licking objects, placing objects in mouth

    * Tactile – scratching, clapping, feeling objects nail biting, hair twisting, toe-walking

    * Vestibular – rocking, spinning, jumping, pacing

    * Proprioception – teeth grinding, pacing, jumping

    DM has been doing all these since Anonymous came on the scene, as well as biting old shoes, crunching empty whiskey bottles up and humping palm trees. So sad.

    Yes, it could be stimming...or it could just be a mentally challenged child scratching his finger. Need more photos to see how often he does it. Same with the Tippy Toe photos.

    It looks like he is exerting quite a big of pressure in his hand because of the way the first and last finger look
  14. Re: Jett Travolta "Stimming"

    That's what made me think it was stimming - his hand looks very stiff or cramped.
