People living with Autism have difficulties with communication. This can lead to challenges in making friends and keeping friendships.
What are the challenges for a person with Autism communicating?
Stimming (self-stimulating behaviour) such as rocking, hand flapping, clicking fingers or jumping are a way the person with Autism feels safe in a place or situation that they are uncomfortable with. However stimming actions are repetitive and can sometimes cause other people to avoid the person with Autism as they see stimming as unusual.
