My daughter (age 2 yrs 4 months) hasn't officially been diagnosed, but it looks like she is on the autism spectrum. The thing that I have the most trouble with is stimming. I just learned the real term for it, but she's shown these behaviors for a while. Late in the evening she starts getting so loud and just starts driving us crazy, and I know it has to have a lot to do with stimming issues. I've been trying to find out more information about it in general, and also what to do to help her when she's needing that sensory input so she doesn't do things that drive us crazy. Any advice?
