how do i make the teachers recognise stimming so they will not punish adam for 'being bad'. when adam is excited, happy, or i think having sensory overload he stims by jumping up and down on one foot, squealing, and flapping his hand across the right side of his face. today this happened at the st. patricks day party and because they do not recognize this as stimming he was punished by not getting a cupcake with all the other children. they have been telling me everyday for 2 weeks that he has been bad in school, always adding that he is jumping around. today another parent told me exactly how he was jumping, she was there all day said he was real good but stimmed alot (she has seen adam do this before at her house she knows wnat it is) now i am thinking that all the being bad and jumping is just stimming. is this not who adam is, i mean stimming is a part of autism that we accept and work with. i just feel like these kids should not be punished for doing something that seems almost natural to them.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
