Children and adults on the autism spectrum may often behave in ways that cause difficulties for themselves and those who care for them. This book offers effective, long-term strategies to help resolve common challenging behaviours such as physical aggression and self-injury. "Managing Family Meltdown" provides possible explanations for these behaviours, and offers a wealth of practical tips on how families can tackle different kinds of challenging behaviour. The authors explore the difference between managing and changing behaviour; how our own behaviour can influence the situation; and the principles of Low Arousal and its application in a family situation. Tried-and-tested ideas for intervention are provided and illustrated by case examples, and the pros and cons of medication are also discussed. This hands-on, practical manual will be indispensable for families, carers and anyone involved with children and adults with autism who need help with behavioral or emotional challenges.
