Trichotillomania, Dermatillomania and the Autism link, part 2
I'm on a bit of a roll.
My attention has been captured and I feel excited to share my ideas.
I wrote a follow up piece to yesterday's post on Trichotillomania, Dermatillomania and the possible connection to the Autism Spectrum Disorder.
This article talks more about stimming which is a characteristic of autism and presents in various ways such as repetitive movements, rocking, pacing, head-banging, clapping, making sounds etc.
It is my belief that compulsive hair pulling and skin-picking could be a stimming behaviour and therefore associated with autism, especially when other characteristics of the disorder are present.
