Restricted and repetitive behaviors in young children with autism (supplement)  

Restricted and repetitive behaviors and interests (RRBs) are a defining characteristic of autism. However, the development, progression, and uniqueness of RRBs are not well understood. While some research has investigated RRBs in older children with autism, the behaviors have not been carefully evaluated in younger children (ages 2-3 years) with ASD. This study will examine the development of RRBs in children (ages 2-3 years) with autism compared to children with typical development and developmental disabilities. Characterizing the developmental course of RRBs will help elucidate their direct impact on social and communication outcomes in autism. This will help individualize intervention and treatment plans for children with ASDs. Project Status
