High Pitched Screams

Video Summary

Dr. Smith explains that seemingly purposeless screaming can be a form of sensory stimulation for children on the spectrum.

"It's only because he's getting some sort of sensory stimulation from the sound of the scream.....or at least the internal feeling that he gets from engaging in the scream.."
— Christopher Smith, PhD
