Anonymous used ask! hey idk if you're the right person to ask, but i was wondering if ppl w/ spd who aren't autistic can stim? like i'm trying to figure out if i'm autistic and i stim but i also have spd on its own so idk?
ah anon, stimming is not exclusive to autism! it is very prevalent in autism but many other disorders can involve stimming! spd is indeed a disorder that can involve stimming in people, so yes it is possible for someone who is spd but not autistic to stim! it is also possible, but not too common, for some autistic people to not have stims at all
but yes you can have spd and also stim
