This video is a few minutes of a 25 minute meltdown that occurred this afternoon. I don’t even remember what caused this one. I do know that these are happening whenever he gets upset anymore.
One of the reasons I am willing to show this is because it is important for people to know that this is what families are going through. I don’t post these video to make Gavin look bad. Gavin is a great kid and I love him unconditionally. That said, when these meltdowns happen life is literally placed on hold. It’s often times like becoming a prisoner in your own home. Everyone, even the family dog is affected. You have to secure the safety of everyone and that is not an easy task. Families like ours need support and understanding. The best way for me to raise awareness is to share our story. I want to provide my children with a better more understanding world. If you read my blog learn our story you will be more aware of children with Autism. This enables more compassion and understanding.
