Stereotypy is defined as a pathological symptom of a mental or nervous disorder, showing itself in continuous repetition of seemingly senseless words and syllables, or of certain postures and actions. Stereotyped behaviour is the most frequently cited inappropriate behaviour amongst individuals with learning disabilities (mental handicap) and autism. This text provides a concise and accessible review of research and management methods for this very common behavioural symptom. Written for professionals working with individuals with learning disabilities, autism and chronic psychiatric disorders, it looks at the different forms of stereotyped behaviour, their origins, assessment and treatment, techniques for controlling stereotypy and future directions.
