Emergence and Maintenance of Stereotype and Self-Injury.
Guess, Doug; Carr, Edward
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v96 n3 p299-319 Nov 1991
A three-level model explains the emergence and maintenance of rhythmic stereotypy and self-injury in disabled individuals: Level 1, internally regulated rhythmic behaviors; Level 2, stereotypy and self-injury as adaptive responses to understimulating or overstimulating environments; and Level 3, stereotypy and self-injury as learned behaviors to control others.
