Re: Hand flapping
Mar 2, 2010
My daughter is 2 yrs old and hand flapps CONSTANTLY and hums. Her therapist said it is self stimulation and We could do somthing soothing for exm. We lay a blanket on floor put her laying down on it and lift it and swing her back n forth(straight line) they said rocking her in stright line would calm her and it does. Also they said when trying to get her to focus on somthing try self stimulating her yourself like spinning ..too much stimming could also mean too much yeast in his diet..hope this help gob bless!

My son loves to spin in circles too ! Anther thing I use to do when he was younger is take him on the swing . This is simialar to what your family does to help your daughter with the self stimming behaviors.
