Asperger's ?

Is this even a possibility for Muffin?  One of his teachers told us today that he is exhibiting stimming behaviors....

Autism?  Aspergers?

I don't know what to say...

Listen with caution, one's person's thoughts do not a diagnosis make.
Stimming can also come from needing more sensory input, especially if he requires more movement, more stimulation.
Hugs to you!

People are quick to conclusions. Do some research but ultimately wait for a professional to tell you. Disability or not, he's still going to be your baby.

I'm so sorry that you and Muffin have to go through all of this...my thoughts are with you <3

It's nice to get a "heads up," but this is not a solid diagnosis. Hang in there...keep your eyes and your mind open.

I agree with Danifred: listen with caution. And even if you get a professional diagnosis, take it with a grain of salt.

But, I know how you must be feeling right now, like someone sucker punched you in the gut and took your breath away. I've been there, and it's not fun.
