Restricted and repetitive behaviors in young children with autism  

Restricted and repetitive behaviors and interests (RRBs) are a defining characteristic of autism. This comparative, longitudinal study will document the early development of RRBs and how these behaviors differ in three groups of young children: 1) children with autism/ASD between 2 and 3 years of age; 2) children with developmental disabilities (DD) between 2 and 3 years of age, and 3) typically developing children (TD).
