About this Event

Meltdowns and Shutdowns

Never been to a virtual learning event? It is like an on-line workshop where you can see the trainer, other attendees, you can type questions, draw on whiteboards, meet with others in break out rooms and see a whole host of visual and written resources. You can also simply watch and learn if that’s your preference.

It is simple to join from a smart-phone or PC/tablet. You will be emailed a link that you simply need to click at the time the session is taking place. Full details of how to access the course will be sent to you once you have registered.

About the course

This workshop is delivered by Aspie Trainers, a project which supports autistic adults to design and deliver engaging, high quality autism training which mixes thorough and up-to-date research and theory with the practical lived experiences of the trainers themselves.

This is a 2 hour virtual workshop for parents, carers and family members of children and young people.

By the end of this workshop students will be able to:

  • Explain the difference between a meltdown, a shutdown and a temper tantrum
  • Identify how having a meltdown or shutdown commonly impacts on an autistic person
  • Understand the factors which contribute to autistic people experiencing meltdowns and/or shutdowns
  • Explore ways to reduce the likelihood of meltdowns or shutdowns
  • Identify ways to support autistic people during and after meltdowns and shutdowns
