A key feature of autism is restricted repetitive behavior (RRB). Despite the significance of RRBs, little is known about their phenomenology, assessment, and treatment. The Repetitive Behavior Scale-Revised (RBS-R) is a recently-developed questionnaire that captures the breadth of RRB in autism. To validate the RBS-R in an independent sample, we conducted a survey within the South Carolina Autism Society. A total of 320 caregivers (32%) responded. Factor analysis produced a five-factor solution… 
Repetitive Behavior in Children and Adolescents: Psychometric Properties of the German Version of the Repetitive Behavior Scale-Revised
TLDR
The psychometric properties of the German version of the RBS-R were examined and the suitability was proofed delivering a four-factor solution, good internal consistency, external validity as well as group, age, and sex effects.
Validation of the Repetitive Behavior Scale-Revised in Spanish-Speakers Participants with Autism Spectrum Disorder
TLDR
The present study examined the psychometric properties of the Spanish version of the RBS-R in a sample of 233 participants with ASD, revealing a six-factor model, good internal consistency, and concurrent-divergent validity.
Psychometric properties of the Repetitive Behavior Scale-Revised for individuals with autism spectrum disorder in Japan
Abstract Restricted and repetitive behaviors (RRBs) constitute a core symptom of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The Repetitive Behavior Scale-Revised (RBS-R) is a widely used questionnaire
Application of the Repetitive Behavior Scale-Revised--Italian version--in preschoolers with autism spectrum disorder.
TLDR
The Italian version of the Repetitive Behavior Scale-Revised (RBS-R) was applied to a relatively large sample of preschool-aged children with ASD who underwent a comprehensive clinical assessment to increase the knowledge of the RRB complexity and variability and in turn improve the diagnostic and therapeutic procedures within the autistic spectrum.
Measurement of subcategories of repetitive behaviors in autistic adolescents and adults.
TLDR
Initial support is provided for the use of the RBS-R Caregiver and Self-Report to measure dimensions of RSM and IS behaviors in autistic adolescents and adults.
Validating the Repetitive Behavior Scale-Revised in Young Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
TLDR
The results confirm the utility of the RBS-R as a measure of repetitive behaviors in young children with ASD.
Behavior and Sensory Interests Questionnaire: Validation in a sample of children with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disability.
TLDR
The BSIQ showed acceptable internal consistency, excellent inter-rater reliability and excellent test-retest reliability, and the construct validity of the B SIQ was confirmed using a series of multi-group confirmatory factor analysis models.
The Development, Reliability, and Validity of the Social Impact of Repetitive Behavior Scale in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
ABSTRACT Introduction: Current measures of restrictive and repetitive behavior (RRB) in people with autism focus on severity and intensity and, to some degree, the global interference of the
Brief Report: Repetitive Behaviours in Greek Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder
TLDR
Results show that the structure of RRBs in this Greek sample can be described using a 2-factor solution, and provides further, cross-cultural support for the distinction between a “high-order” factor reflecting compulsions, rituals, sameness, and restricted behaviours (CRSRB) and a ‘low- order’ factor reflecting stereotyped movements and self-injurious behaviours (SSIB).
Subcategories of Restricted and Repetitive Behaviors in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders
TLDR
Findings support the continued use of RRB subcategories, particularly IS behaviors, as a means of creating more behaviorally homogeneous subgroups of children with ASD.

TLDR
Defining subgroups within autism will allow for reduction of clinical heterogeneity and enhance the ability to dissect the genetic etiology of this complex disorder.
Repetitive behavior disorders in autism
Autism is associated with a wide range of repetitive behaviors. These behaviors, although diagnostic for the disorder, have been the subject of far less attention than social and communication
Children's Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale modified for pervasive developmental disorders.
TLDR
The five-item CYBOCS-PDD is reliable, distinct from other measures of repetitive behavior, and sensitive to change.
Repetitive behaviors in autistic disorder
TLDR
Certain “repetitive” activities may not represent core features of autistic disorder and may be equivalent to normal motor and cognitive behaviors, as seen during typical development.

TLDR
Although abnormal repetition is not specific to autism, an elevated pattern of occurrence and severity appears to characterize the disorder.

TLDR
These findings represent the first documented link between the restricted range of interests and stereotyped behaviors pathognomonic of autism and particular neuroanatomic sites.
A case-controlled study of repetitive thoughts and behavior in adults with autistic disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
TLDR
The results suggest that the repetitive thoughts and behavior characteristics of autism differ significantly from the obsessive-Compulsive symptoms displayed by patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder.

TLDR
The CY-BOCS yields reliable and valid subscale and total scores for obsessive-compulsive symptom severity in children and adolescents with OCD and may be influenced by age of the child and the hazards associated with integrating data from parental and patient sources.

TLDR
The prevalence, in children aged under 15, of severe impairments of social interaction, language abnormalities, and repetitive stereotyped behaviors was investigated in an area of London, and a system of classification based on quality ofsocial interaction was considered.
