Purpose of the study
Self-stimulatory behaviors are common among children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (Cunningham & Schreibman, 2008). Aggression is also a common behavior problem among children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (Hill et al., 2014). Various scholars have suggested that an association exists between the self-stimulatory behaviors found in children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders and aggressive behavior, another common behavior challenge (Dominic et al., 2007 and Kanne & Mazurek, 2011). The purpose of this study is to determine the relationship that exists between the self-stimulatory behavior and aggressive behavior in children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
