The Case of Sensational Stims (Paperback)
This book helps families understand the autism spectrum in a simple, strengths-based way.
When I learned my child was autistic, I couldn't even explain what autism meant. I felt scared and helpless. Autism always seemed like something bad.
My child was amazing just the way he was.
But when I learned about stimming, I could begin to understand what autism means for my family. I was no longer afraid
It is a sign that a person is managing things like: noises, lights, food, changes in routines, learning exciting bits of information, having a big feeling, etc.
Stimming might look like: rocking, hand flapping, repeating a word, galloping, pacing. Most people stim.
When we discover the purpose of a stim, we can help autistic people thrive.
Sometimes, you need to be a detective to understand what a stim means, and this is why this book is called "The Case of Sensational Stims".
Joey and Elise teach what autism is and how to support autistic people by showing what stimming is and why it matters.
