Comforting and Coping A Meltdown

Having a child on the autism spectrum can lead to meltdowns in public but not many understanding why. How do you deal with your child’s meltdowns? Many of these meltdowns happen over the slightest things that may not bother most children. But what we need to keep in mind is how we deal with these moments and how to comfort our children when we least expect it.

Watch this reenactment of a child on the spectrum and how a brush of the arm and a loud noise triggers a meltdown. Parents needs to understand this is not their or their child’s fault, we just need to help our children cope with what may come when they are out in public and how to effectively calm them down. Knowledge is power!
