Sensory Seeking Behavior: Running in Circles

Video Summary

Sensory seeking behavior can be a warning sign for autism. While listening to music, Christian K., a child with autism, displays a repetitive, physical behavior, running around a chair in circles, that is potentially related to his sensory interests and needs. Particularly, the repetitive routine, and seemingly rigid nature of this behavior suggests that it may have a sensory component as opposed to being a typical celebratory dance.
