Week 3: How to Cope with Meltdowns

Crystal harms, M.Ed, BCaBA is the Clinical Director at ConnectPlus Therapy. Crystal has been a BCaBA for 22 years and was certified as a teacher of the Handicapped in 1997. This workshop will examine the difference between a sensory based “meltdown” and functionally driven behavior in individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder.  Each trigger for these behaviors may need to be responded to in a different way, depending on the nature of the situation. This workshop will focus on how to determine when the child is truly escalated into crisis. In addition, strategies will be shared on how to respond to these situations in a compassionate and productive way.  The session will be very conversational and allow for examples and discussion with the audience.
