Chock, Patricia N.; Glahn, T. J.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v13 n4 p365-81 Dec 1983
The effects of self-stimulation on task acquisition were studied in three mute low-functioning autistic and three echolic higher-functioning autistic children in multiple-baseline designs. The study found that the echolalic children were able to learn the task without external suppression of their self-stimulation but the mute Ss were not. (CL)
