Stereotypy treatment

From a colleague: 

A mother told me yesterday that she cured her autistic son's hand flapping with use of tarantula drops. This is made by dissolving a female tarantula in oil and diluting the solution. Drops are given orally to an affected child. 

This works because the female tarantula does a stereotypic dance. Because of this, the female tarantula essence in oil can cure stereotypies. 
Another treatment to add to our arsenal!
