Autism Meltdowns in Children and Adolescents: Practical Strategies for Prevention, Intervention and Post-vention – Kathy Morris

  • Techniques to develop self-control and self-management skills
  • Essential skills to defuse explosive behaviors and de-escalate meltdowns
  • Powerful incentives to change inappropriate behaviors
  • Activities for reviewing behaviors when calm
  • Case examples with dozens of strategies you can use immediately

Do you work with children and adolescents with autism who exhibit behaviors that interfere with their ability to effectively and efficiently navigate their environment? They appear willful, obnoxious, over reactive, and unfeeling. They lose control of their ability to cope or regulate their behavior, which can send them spiraling into a meltdown. And, you feel frustrated, powerless and helpless after each meltdown.

Drawing on over 40 years of professional and personal experience, Kathy will lead you through dynamic discussion, video case examples and demonstrations providing dozens of strategies you can implement immediately with these children/adolescents—in any setting. Walk away with an array of practical strategies for:

  • Preventing and de-escalating meltdowns
  • Teaching and promoting appropriate behaviors
  • Providing instructional consequences/replacement behaviors
  • Developing self-control and self-management skills
  • … and more!

  1. Discriminate functions of behavior during a tantrum vs. meltdown.
  2. Demonstrate the connections and breakdowns between communication, social skills and behaviors.
  3. Employ a breathe card and emotions chart to develop self-control and selfmanagement skills.
  4. Design optimal therapy/classroom structure to prevent overstimulation and sensory breakdowns.
  5. Employ SOCCSS, keychain rules and t-charts to prevent, intervene or consequate targeted behaviors.
  6. Utilize surprise cards, change of schedule cues and transition markers to alleviate anxiety.
  7. Implement a “system” rather than a person dependent intervention.
