Thirty-nine children (younger than 40 months) with developmental disabilities and identified as at risk for self-injurious behavior (SIB) were studied using video sampling, observation notes, parent reports, staff reports, and clinical records. Twenty-one children or 4.6 percent of the original group exhibited SIBs. Almost all children in the sample showed some body-rocking behavior. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
