But I would probably try the new one what if it's the thing he likes?"Thanks I appreciate your opinion, and the sympathy. I have a question for you. I have noticed that Brady is stimming more lately, and when I brought this up to his OT she said good. I am confused, is it good for them to stim or is it a negative. He always had the hand gestures (opening and closing, and slapping his head) but he didn't do much of the rocking, but now he is-I know you shouldn't necessarily stop them, but I know you've posted before that you try to get Jamil redirected...so what should I do?

I try to redirect him to something more functional that will meet his needs... I try to break him if he's stuck in a loop,"Okay I think I get it. If he is stimming because he is watching a movie and it helps him cope with the action then let him. But if he is idly stimming, as in jumping and flapping while doing nothing productive, then try and engage him in something.....it is the something I have issues with,lol. Thanks again my helpful guru.
