Research comparing the stereotypic behavior
of two groups--with and without visual impairment--under conditions of quiet versus an auditorily rich environmental context would also be informative.
He also frequently engaged in stereotypic behavior
that consisted of shaking objects, primarily string, in front of his face.
His behavior issues were comprised of refusing to speak when he was upset as well as some stereotypic behavior
such as rocking during group activities or turning his head away from the teacher and looking back at her from the corner of his eye.
Additionally, primary localized pain or pruritus (such as poor wing trimming, ectoparasites, or allergic dermatitis) (25) could lead to secondary psychogenic feather-damaging behavior, which has been considered a stereotypic behavior
Effects of response blocking and competing stimuli on stereotypic behavior
Furthermore, there had been no stereotypic behavior
typical of ASD (we interpreted hand movements as part of psychotic symptoms rather than sterotypes).
According to this paradigm, one of two things happens: 1) SIB that is initially nonsocially reinforced will come under control of social reinforcement or 2) social reinforcement mediates the transition from stereotypic behavior
to SIB (Oliver, Hall & Murphy, 2005; Richman & Lindauer, 2005).
Automated measures of stereotypic behavior
Matched and unmatched stimuli are items that produce sensory consequences similar or not similar, respectively, to the hypothesized sensory consequences of the stereotypic behavior
1983), both demonstrated that short inter-trial intervals (ITI) reduced stereotypic behavior
in children with autism when compared to long ITIs.
These children also engage less frequently in manipulative play or use toys functionally and demonstrate more stereotypic behavior
(such as rocking or eye poking) during play (Rettig, 1994; Skellenger & Hill, 1994; Troster & Brambring, 1994), have difficulty initiating and sustaining interactions with their peers (Celeste, 2006), and require adults' facilitation in inclusive play settings to make play meaningful for them (Rettig, 1994; Skellenger & Hill, 1994).
