I think it’s important to help people understand some of what families like mine go through. This meltdown in particular was very, very mild. However, I thought it may help someone to see how we managed it. It’s important to note that I have to handle Gavin’s meltdowns in a……..certain way, otherwise he will escalate. We have found that this type of approach works best to bring him back from these meltdowns. Your milage may very but I just want to demonstrate what I do to manage these situations.
Gavin, got himself under control rather quickly. So my hats off to him on this one. It may sound weird to some but he really did control himself well here.
