In all my years of advocating from the perspective of an Autism parent, one of the most frequent, most frustrating and most misunderstood aspects has to do with meltdowns.
There are so many assumptions and so much judgement and misunderstanding surrounding meltdowns.
I put together a basic cheat sheet of sorts, that can be easily shared via social media. The purpose is to help dispel some of the assumptions and misunderstandings surrounding meltdowns. My hope is to promote a better understanding of what a meltdown is and what it is not.
