What to Do After the Meltdown
When students with cognitive disorders, such as autism, Asperger’s, or other developmental disorders have a melt-down, the educators as well as parents naturally feel quite helpless and may not be certain what to do to prevent or stop it. In this seminar, many practical strategies are presented that the educator or parent can implement to prevent another one, intervene in the meltdown, and provide instructional consequences.
