Stimming is a way for a person with Autism Spectrum Disorder to focus on a single activity when his or her senses are under assault. One way to think of it is when you are feeling scared or seasick on a boat in rough seas, you might pick a point on land to stare at. Becoming hyper focused on a single point reduces the chaos pouring into your senses and calms you down.
