Re: Autism/ Arm flapping.
My son done the hand flapping , finger flipping in front of his eyes since he has been very young. It is a autism trait. At least that is what I have been told. He also spins in circles , and never becomes dizzy. it's so odd. He use to love to jump up and down when young too. But, now that he is nearly 16 yrs old, he hand flaps only when very excited . Or when in his "mode" Sometime he has a problem with uncontrobale laughter . He just laughs and can't stop. He gets into trouble for this at school. He's in a SDC H.S. class and they make him go outside until he stops the laughing. There are other things that he does too, that are common in high functioning autism. Which he is.
