Early Development of Self-Injurious Behavior: An Empirical Study.
Hall, Scott; Oliver, Chris; Murphy, Glynis
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v106 n2 p189-99 Mar 2001
The early development of self-injurious behavior (SIB) in 16 young children with developmental disabilities was tracked over an 18-month period. Naturalistic observations in each child's classroom found a significant association between early SIB and low levels of social contact, which may be considered as a risk marker for SIB exacerbation. Implications for early intervention for SIB are discussed. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
