Lending a Stimming Hand

We've figured out that when the Little Man starts stimming, we can quickly calm it by rubbing his face and head vigorously. I guess because of his hypo-sensory issues, he doesn't feel it and needs a reminder now and then? Anyway, doing that a couple of times a day at the first signs eliminates the whole running around and bashing his head into furniture bit. Also eliminates the need for a crash helmet and floor to ceiling padding.

Anyway, the other day, Hubby was sitting on the couch and tapping his foot. Little Man went up to him and patted him on the head. LOL. I guess he thought Hubby was stimming (maybe he was!).
