Stereotyped Behavior in Developmentally Delayed or Autistic Populations: Rhythmic or Nonrhythmic?
Ross, Linda L.; Yu, Dickie; Kropla, William C.
Behavior Modification, v22 n3 p321-34 Jul 1998
Examines various stereotypy with developmentally delayed and autistic individuals (N=9) and used spectral methods to detect existence of periodicities. Participants who engaged in stereotypic rocking showed peaks in their power spectra; participants who engaged in other topographies of stereotypy did not show peaks. Results suggest that rhythmicity does not appear to be characteristic of stereotypy in general. (Author/MKA)
