The Differential and Temporal Effects of Antecedent Exercise on the Self-Stimulatory Behavior of a Child with Autism.
Celiberti, David A.; And Others
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v18 n2 p139-50 Mar-Apr 1997
The effects of two levels of exercise (walking versus jogging) in suppressing the self-stimulatory behavior during academic programming of a 5-year-old boy with autism were examined. Decreased physical self-stimulation and "out of seat" behavior were found only for the jogging condition. Sharp reductions in these behaviors did not return to baseline over a 40-minute period.
