I hear a lot of controversy with fidget spinner’s how they’re very helpful stimming is necessary for autistic people and people with ADHD, and anxiety, and many other ND things. Stimming help to regulate sensory input, to concentrate, fidget spinners being the biggest way and increasingly popular stim but they’re becoming more like a toy and not like a tool that helps people kids who don’t suffer from these kind of things are just buying them and seeing them as fun things there being banned from school for reasons that are distracting kids and kids are just buying these tools not knowing that these tools are made for people who suffer from these type of things it’s taking away the freedom to use them to use that coping mechanism when it’s really needed I myself needed these kind of things while I was in school I had anxiety I still have anxiety and I honestly wish I would’ve had a fidget spinner well I was nervous standing up in front of the class well I was planning on doing a oral report read aloud.
Now these toys are being banned and prohibited from schools they’re considered stimulation toys for people who suffer from these Nuro divergences honestly if you plan on using a stem toy don’t do it in a setting where it’s going to be disruptive don’t use it in a way that it’s going to get it banned because you’re limiting a coping mechanism him from ever other kids that could seriously use it. And please don’t talk down about people who have these kinds of issues I myself have a nephew who is autistic and he when he gets older will benefit from these types of stim toys and now Stimming is necessary for autistic people and people with ADHD, and anxiety, and many other ND things. Stimming help to regulate sensory input, to concentrate,
I’m not saying that you can’t use these just because you If you just think stimming is cool, please don’t do it in a way that harms the people who need it!
Stimming is for everyone, but please keep in mind of those who need or are helped by stimming! diagnosed with this kind of disorder or syndrome what I’m saying is be aware If you just think stimming is cool, please don’t do it in a way that harms the people who need it!
