Hi, I have a 4 1/2 y/o boy and he stims only every so often. Often with the fluttering of fingers by his face, and looking at things out of the corner of his eyes, even while walking, has bruises to prove it, heehee! I have never tried to stop his stimming, because it doesn't seem to interfere with his routine at home but his support worker at preschool immediatly stops him when he stims. Granted he seems to do it more when he is there. If he starts to get lost in himself with the stimming, I will redirect his attention but for the most part he only does it 4-5 times a day and then only for a short time. Should I stop him or is stimming alright, I have heard both sides of the arguement, and still don't know which to go with!!
