Hall, Scott; Thorns, Tracy; Oliver, Chris
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v108 n6 p391-402 Nov 2003
This study examined structural characteristics and environmental variables in the stereotypic behaviors of eight individuals with developmental disabilities. Findings indicated that structural characteristics (percentage of time, bout length, and bout length variability) were highly correlated. Also, stereotyped behaviors were more likely to occur under conditions of low stimulation and less likely during social contact. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
