The Hidden Curriculum of the Cycle of Meltdowns for Individuals with High Functioning-Autism Spectrum Disorder***By Dr. Brenda Smith Myles, Associate Professor, Resident Scholar for Ohio Center for Autism & Low Incidence (OCALI)***The majority of learners on the spectrum experience self-regulation and sensory issues that can lead to meltdowns. This escalating sequence seems to follow a three-stage cycle: (a) rumbling, (b) rage, and (c) recovery. This sequence can be problematic as many children and youth with ASD often endure the cycle unaware that they are under stress. This session will overview the issues related to self-regulation and sensory issues — highlighting research in a practical manner and interventions that address these needs. At the end of this session, attendees will be able to: 1. Identify self-regulation and sensory issues experienced by individuals on the spectrum. 2. Describe interventions that that address self-regulation and sensory needs. 3. Discuss the cycle of meltdowns.
