Spinning and Stimming

Video Summary

One early warning sign of autism is repetitive motor movements. Here we see Nathan spin his body around over and over while making repetitive, high pitched sounds. This unusual spinning behavior is clearly different than a simple spinning game. Rather, the purpose of Nathan's spinning is unclear and has a notable repetitive, stereotyped quality to it, consistent with an autism spectrum disorder.
