Matson, Johnny L.; Mahan, Sara; Hess, Julie A.; Fodstad, Jill C.; Neal, Daniene
Research in Autism Spectrum Disorders, v4 n3 p400-404 Jul-Sep 2010
This study examined the effect of age on challenging behaviors among 167 children, ages 3-14 years, with Autistic Disorder, Pervasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified, or Asperger's syndrome. Results of a MANOVA indicated that there were no significant differences between young children, children, and young adolescents on any of the 18 items comprising the Autism Spectrum Disorder-Problem Behavior for Children (ASD-PBC). A curve estimation further supported that challenging behaviors were chronic among children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorders. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
