Restricted and repetitive behaviors represent a core symptom of autism spectrum disorders. While there has been an increase in research into this domain in recent years, compared to social-communication impairments experienced by children with autism spectrum disorders, much less is known about their development, etiology, and management. Parent-mediated interventions have become increasingly popular in the field, with a surge of studies reporting significant findings in social communication…

A Systematic Review of the Role of Parent Characteristics in Parent-Mediated Interventions for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Results indicated that stress, socioeconomic status, and the broad autism phenotype may be related to children’s outcomes, with varying effects depending on the specific treatment and outcome examined.

Treatment for Higher-Order Restricted Repetitive Behaviors (H-RRB) in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Improvements showed improvements in child behavior, parent and child affect and interactions, children’s engagement in family activities, and overall parent ratings of RRB.

Repetitive Restricted Behaviors in Autism Spectrum Disorder: From Mechanism to Development of Therapeutics

The latest advances of RRBs from mechanistic to therapeutic approaches are summarized and potential future directions in research on RRBs are proposed.

Parent Training Program for Autism Spectrum Disorder During The Covid-19 Pandemic Period in Indonesia

Parent Training can be done as an effort to provide information, education, and skills to parents so that they can provide intensive, comprehensive, sustainable, and early intervention.

A clinical and cost-effectiveness trial of a parent group intervention to manage challenging restricted and repetitive behaviours in young children with autism spectrum disorder: study protocol for a randomised controlled trial

If found to be effective, this intervention has the potential to improve the well-being of children and their families, reduce parental stress, greatly enhance community participation and potential for learning, and improve longer-term outcomes.

The impact of caregiver‐mediated JASPER on child restricted and repetitive behaviors and caregiver responses

It was shown that a short‐term social‐communication intervention delivered through caregivers had “spillover effects” on how they also responded to their child's RRBs.

Evidence-Based Behavioral Interventions for Repetitive Behaviors in Autism

Restricted and repetitive behaviors (RRBs) are a core symptom of autism spectrum disorders (ASD). There has been an increased research emphasis on repetitive behaviors; however, this research

Restricted and Repetitive Behaviors in Autism Spectrum Disorders and Typical Development: Cross-Sectional and Longitudinal Comparisons

RRBs did not correlate with social and communicative impairments in the ASD group, suggesting dissociation between these domains, however RRBs were not unique to ASD and evident in the TD control group albeit at a reduced frequency.

New directions in behavioral treatment of autism spectrum disorders

Overall, the reviewed studies suggest that ASD-specific deficits can be improved through behavioral intervention, however, whereas progress continues to be made in the understanding of effective treatments for children with ASD, confidence in these findings would be improved with higher-quality studies.
