The Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders has published a new study showing that nearly 28% of 8-year-old children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) behave in ways that can lead to self-injury. These findings suggest that self-injurious behaviors, such as head banging, arm biting, and skin scratching, are common among children with ASD. More research is needed to determine factors that may cause self-injurious behaviors.
