Is your child on the autism spectrum? Do you frequently get overwhelmed with others not understanding their actions?
Taking a child experiencing disabilities to new, unfamiliar places can be a difficult task. You never know how they might react and more importantly, you never know how others will react if they have a meltdown.
We have found some "autism cards" that give others a heads up on why your child might have a sudden meltdown. Movie theatres, public buses or even airplanes might be an appropraite place to give those around you a heads up so they are more understanding.
Here are somethings you should know about meltdowns in children on the autism spectrum:
- they are frequently to gain attention
- can result in self harm
- can occur anywhere
- will typically wind down on their own
- the child typically feels out of control
