Vocal Stimming

Posted by Admin on January 22, 2014 at 6:35 AM

I think this blizzard has gotten to me.  I've noticed that I started some vocal stimming.  My vocal stimming usually consists of CONSTANTLY stating my thoughts out loud without thinking it through (even if they don't make sense).  It also usually includes a lot of scripting.  (Scripting is when you repeat things you've heard or seen, and it's often word for word.)  I can be alone or with others when I do this.  I didn't even realize that I had any vocal stims until about a month ago....but now that I know what it is, I realize that I've done it my whole life.  It helps me to process my thoughts better.  (Very similar to repeating a song that is stuck in your head until you get it out.)

Thank you for your blog. My daughter has Asperger's and I see her do the same things you talk about. It's hard to explain to other people and this is a great resource. My daughter is 9 and I have her read some of the posts so that she can begin to understand why she does some of the things she does and know she isn't the only person who lives with Asperger's. Again, thank you.
