Proven strategies to Overcome Sensory Meltdowns

Does this sound familiar?

Your child or student is having a meltdown… and you’re struggling with how to react.

How do you keep your cool, while still being able to cope with the meltdown?

Is it a tantrum or is your child having a response to sensory overload and having a meltdown?

The meltdowns seem to come out of nowhere and you can’t seem to figure out what the triggers are. Where do you start?

You aren’t sure if you are supporting the behavior with the right sensory solutions or if you’re just reinforcing “bad” behavior.

When we talk to parents, therapists, and teachers about their biggest struggles with their child or student, meltdowns are often at the top of the list.
