Stereotypic movements are one of the most common forms of problematic behaviour particularly among children who are blind. These repetitive, persistent and pervasive fixed body movements can negatively interfere with the child's development, learning and social inclusion. Given that most children who are blind are included in the regular education system, it is vitally important that educators have current knowledge about stereotypic behaviour in order to consider interventions regarded as best practice.
