The term "stimming" is short for "self-stimulatory behaviors" and is referring to the repetition of physical movements, sounds, words, or objects. EVERYONE, regardless of brain type, has a tendency to stim when put in a situation of fear, anxiety, or stems from boredom. It's more common for those of us with ADHD brains to present "stimming" more frequently and with more intensity because of the way that our busy minds are wired. In this episode, you will hear from neuropsychologist, Dr. Kristin Wegner, who will share both her expertise in stimming behavior and her personal experience with it growing up. She was recently diagnosed with ADHD as an adult and she now diagnoses and works with kids who have neurodivergent minds through her play method. She is the award winning offer of the children's book series titled, "Brody the Lion". In this book series, you will also meet characters within each book that has ADHD and other differences. Kristin is extremely gifted at speaking to children and you will love hearing all that she has to share! You can find her on Instagram @brody.the.lion or

There are different types of stimming behavior, including visual, verbal, auditory, taste & smell, tactile (touch), physical movement (vestibular: Repetitive action that has to do with balance (spinning, rocking) or proprioceptive: Spatial awareness and control *throwing items, pacing, jumping). The encouragement in this podcast is to become more self-aware of your "self-stimming" behavior, so you can identify if it's safe to continue doing and/or if it is something that needs to be investigated so that we aren't causing harm to yourself or others. 

My friend Antonio, from Australia, shares his take on his own verbal stimming. I hope that hearing from a peer will help remind you that you're not alone and that we are an ADHD tribe here to support and encourage each other!
