Autism Meltdowns: Intervention And Prevention Techniques That Work

Most kids on the autism spectrum will experience meltdowns. Parents often find it hard to tell  meltdowns and tantrums apart, but they are different problems. Meltdowns can be difficult and scary for kids with Asperger’s and High Functioning Autism, as well as to their parents and siblings. However, with just a few critical changes, the household can move past such episodes fairly easily. The affected child will feel more in control of his or her feelings/reactions and will, hopefully, come to trust that help will always be there.

  1. VERY thoughtful and thorough post.
    As a parent on the spectrum with a child on the spectrum I have learned ways to stop my own meltdowns (Mostly internal) as i have learned to help with his...The main thing for me is sensory and social breaks where I need quiet, dark, etc.
