    Kids with Autism usually have self stimulatory behaviors. Most people have seen this if they have ever seen a child on the spectrum rock back and forth (what people used to think all Autism looked like). They do it for various reasons. It helps them calm and soothe themselves if they are overstimulated, helps them ramp up their sensory system if they are under stimulated, etc. It is used to help them organize their sensory system.

    Thank you so much for asking, @Baymule.

    Thanks everyone! It’s still a little sore but he is using it in a normal fashion so no visit. His sensory system is almost like it’s asleep, so if he complains of pain at a 2 on a pain scale, it could actually be damage that would have us at an 8. So I have to take those things into account.

    My son tested at an extremely high IQ when we did his battery of testing. But he has some fairly serious memory issues and learning disabilities going on too. It’s like he has a wall up between his IQ and the world and can’t access it.

    A dear friend of ours, who is like a daughter to us, has an 18 year old daughter who is high functioning autistic. She is a good kid, in special classes and loves to talk. Most of the time, if you didn't "know" then you wouldn't realize it.

    Paint Ritchie? Oooooooo you got to take pictures! Thanks for coffee, worked in the garden yesterday and I slept like a rock.
