Although there have been few large-scale studies examining the prevalence of aggression in children with autism spectrum disorder, it is estimated that around 50% of children and adolescents on the spectrum regularly engage in aggressive behavior.

Aggressive behavior can be defined as impulsive behaviors that may injure another person, themselves, or destroy property. Examples would be behaviors such as biting, hitting, or kicking another person, throwing, breaking, or knocking objects over and biting or injuring themselves.
