Information was collected on 95 people with mental retardation identified seven years previously as showing severe self-injurious behavior. Seventy-one percent were still showing severe self-injurious behavior. Self-injury status was predicted by a logistical regression model containing three variables: site of injury, reported stability of self-injury when first identified, and age. (Contains references.)
