When a person on the autism spectrum experience behaviours of concern, it can be difficult to know how to respond.
Autism can cause a range of social, communication and behavioural challenges.
Many autistic children and adults are also highly sensitive to sensory input, meaning that certain sights, sounds or textures can trigger anxiety and distress.
It's Important to Be Aware of The Early Signs of Stress and Anxiety in Autistic People, as well as The Sensory Triggers That May Contribute to Their Behaviour.
When you know this, you can begin to develop effective strategies for de-escalating potential meltdowns and creating a calmer environment for the autistic people you support and care for.
Each autistic person is unique and requires a customized approach.
What works for one person may not work for another.
As parents or professionals, we want what's best for the people we support.
We want to see them happy and thriving, and we'll do whatever it takes to help them get there.
