Autism and Meltdowns

April is Autism Awareness Month.  This week I want to focus on autism and meltdowns.  Here is a not so pretty portrait of one of Nick’s meltdowns that I have deconstructed for you.  Nick at the time was 19 years old.  He has Down syndrome and autism.  This will give you an idea of the triggers and behaviors that can occur during a meltdown.  It will also show you what I learned to try and prevent this in the future.

That’s what is in my noggin this week.  Thank you for reading and sharing the reality of autism.
