so, I'm looking for summer jobs

and I want to work at this camp for ASD people (I wanted to last year, but didn't get it; hopefully this year I have a better chance because I'm applying earlier and have more experience). Anyway, look at this charming passage from their website:

Behaviors may by inappropriate (e.g., asking repetitive questions, flapping ones' hands, attempting to masturbate in public, etc.),

yeah you guys
those are all the SAME KIND OF THING

  1. Ugh! The lack of discrimination between truly disruptive/aggressive behaviors and other stims is so common. I worked at an ABA-based school here in Utah for two years and eventually I felt like I was just there to torture children.

    I twirl my hair so excessively that I certainly consider it an SSB... and I would definitely punch someone in the face if they tried to "redirect" me.
