Challenging behaviour, violent outbursts and meltdowns can put a strain on the entire family of a child on the autism spectrum. This book offers practical, long-term and effective strategies to help resolve common challenging behaviours using a low arousal approach – a non-aversive approach based on avoiding confrontation and reducing stress and anxiety. Managing Family Meltdown provides explanations for challenging behaviours, and offers a wealth of guidance on how families can manage different types of challenging behaviour, such as physical aggression and self-injury. The authors explore the difference between managing and changing behaviour; how our own behaviour can influence the situation; and show how by reducing stress and anxiety children are better able to process information becoming less likely to react in challenging ways. The pros and cons of medication and ways to look after your own health are also discussed. This hands-on, practical book is appropriate for children who are non-verbal, as well as those with higher functioning autism and will be indispensable for families, carers and anyone involved with children on the autism spectrum.

Helpful examples covering a wide range of developmental disabilities from autism to Down's Syndrome illustrate the positive changes that can be achieved. This empowering book will be invaluable to anyone attempting to deal with unproductive behaviour in individuals with developmental disabilities, whether at home or in a professional environment.

When facing a chaotic or threatening situation, fear overwhelms an individual with autism. 'Meltdowns,' or catastrophic reactions, can be scary for the individual with autism, and for the person trying to help if they don't know how to react. Common autistic coping strategies such as hand-flapping or leg-shaking can be misperceived as temper tantrums, and response techniques commonly recommended in times of distress, such as maintaining eye contact or using light touch, can be exacerbating rather than helpful. Using the easy-to-remember S.C.A.R.E.D., coined by clinical psychologist Will Richards, this guide offers strategies and practical techniques that will be a reference tool to anyone in a first response position. The authors have created a training program to explain the autistic experience and mindset, and guide the interventions of first responders to autistic individuals in crisis.
