    Hi,

    I am translating a text on autism, and it mentions that one of the symptoms can be 'finger flipping.' I don't know what to call it in Spanish. The action is shown a little way into the video. "Chasquear" was suggested, but it doesn't satisfy me. Suggestions, please.

    :)

    Efectivamente los autistas chasquean (o chascan) los dedos, también retuercen los dedos o las manos.

    Well they do say that if you have 100 autism cases, you have 100 difference kinds of autism. My autistic grandson, thank God, does not do this. Thanks for the word.
