What's your understanding of needing to look at things with peripheral vision? This is my 3 yr old son's greatest stim. He LOVES to make the "nnnnnn" noise and take his toy trains. He starts with them near the corner of his right eye and holds them very close, maybe 1 or 2 inches away from his eye. Then he slowly moves it across his eyes to the corner of the left eye while saying "nnnnn". Sometimes if he is really excited he will jump in place while doing this. He will repeat this over and over again. Although his favorite toy to do this with are his trains he has done it with many other things too. Such as beads, blocks, the bath tub plug, the remote control... When he wants to be affectionate with me he will put his face to mine and turn his head from side to side looking out of the corners of his eyes while saying "eeeeee". I usually let him do it as he seems so happy when he does. I will redirect him though if it is going on for too long. What to you think he is gaining from it? Is it ok to let him do this?
