I heard that I should never reduce my child’s “stimming”. Is this true?

It depends. We only recommend reducing self-stimulatory behaviors when they clearly interfere with learning, social integration or daily functioning. If the behaviors have a low frequency or no negative impact on the child, we would most likely recommend not to intervene. iSTIM has been developed for high to very high levels of self-stimulatory that can hinder the child’s development.
