Repetitive behaviors frequently dominate the daily activity of autistic children, can significantly interfere with opportunities to develop functional behaviors, and are frequently the target of intervention and treatment. A central theme in the recent research findings in repetitive behavior is that while all cases by definition have expressed repetitive behaviors, several distinct subtypes of repetitive behavior appear to exist across persons with autism spectrum disorders. This chapter discusses the phenomenology, pathogenesis, and interventions for repetitive behaviors.
