How many of us have kiddos who stim? My youngest one used to bang his head all of the time, and I worried if this would go on forever.

“The word stim is short for self-stimulation. It is associated with several conditions such as deafblindness and intellectual disability, but most commonly with autism.” – Friendship Circle
