What is stimming? Why do Autistic people do it? What are some common stims among the Autistic population? What the heck is "proprioception"? Answers to all of these questions (and a surprise appearance from my cat!) in the first episode of Ask an Autistic!

Three main reasons an Autistic person will stim:
1) Self-regulation
2) Sensory seeking
3) Expression

The seven senses discussed:
1) Taste
2) Smell
3) Touch
4) Sight
5) Hearing
6) Proprioceptive
7) Vestibular
