The Conversation on Meltdowns and Violence We Need to Have

Over at Emma’s Hope Blog, there has been an incredible conversation going on about the sensitive subject of violence and meltdowns.  What sets this conversation apart is that it is not the distant, objective viewpoint of the clinician, nor the shocked and puzzled opinion of the general public, but the voices of autistic individuals and their families.  I see a lot of good coming from this.

Here are the posts so far:
