Major meltdowns return

Gavin had a second,  humongous meltdown last night. It lasted about an hour and was quite violent. For the first time,  Gavin in went after me.  He kicked his shoes and just missed me.

Gavin had been playing with Elliott and Emmett and was creeping them out.  The boys were getting upset and asking him to stop and he wouldn’t. 

Lizze had been watching and intervened as soon as it was apparent that Gavin wouldn’t stop.

The subsequent meltdown was so loud,  I couldn’t believe that no one called the police. I honestly don’t know how we dodged the bullet on that one.

His meltdowns are getting worse and they are affecting the other boys. I have a post explaining more details about just how the boys are being affected and it should go live in a little while.

Something has to give…..

Just wanted to suggest something: (and I have not met Gavin, nor am I a professional, and all individuals with Autism are unique). I was just wondering is it possible that Gavin's not listening to the other boys asking him to stop a sign that he is overstimulated? Can you or Lizzie suggest that he take a break? Not as a cop out, but simply to give him a few minutes to chill and decompress and regulate his system again? Not sure…… just trying to brainstorm…..
