Meltdowns & Autism Awareness: A Resource For Parents

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
