In this video, Shannon Penrod talks candidly about tantrums and meltdowns, including the difference between a tantrum and a meltdown, how communication challenges in autism lead to tantrums, and how tantrums always serve a purpose in a person’s ability to communicate their wants and needs.
Penrod shares excellent tips about what to do – or not do – before a tantrum begins, what to do to head them off, and what to do during and after tantrums occur.
