About Me

In June of 2014 my family learned that my 4 year old son was autistic. This is a window into our world. What it's like day in, and day out for an autistic child.

(Major) Meltdown

Yesterday, my husband and four children went out for a few hours. Justin stayed with Grandma.

He had a great time with Grandma, and was very well behaved.

Once we got home, about an hour later. Justin started crying. He had huge tears going down his cheeks, and he was inconsolable.

I took him to the couch, and just held him while he cried.

After he cried for awhile, he hit himself really hard in the head. He than looked angrily at me after he did this.

This went on for about an hour.

Afterwards, he was as happy as could be !

He hasn't had a meltdown in quite some time. I think it was prompted by the rest of the family leaving him.
