A Comparison of the Characteristics of Self-Stimulatory Behaviors in "Normal" Children and Children with Developmental Delays.
Smith, Erin Arlene; Van Houten, Ron
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v17 n4 p253-68 Jul-Aug 1996
This study compared the occurrence and characteristics of self-stimulatory behaviors of 5 children with developmental delays and 10 nondisabled children (matched for either mental or chronological age). Few differences were found between groups in percentage of time spent in self-stimulatory behavior, the variety of such behaviors, the speed at which behaviors were performed, or degree of perseverance.
