Meltdowns are stressful for both child and adult, and they can happen anywhere-at school, at home or out in public.

Author of the award-winning Social Skills Picture Book series, Dr Jed Baker offers parents and teachers strategies for preventing and managing meltdowns. His 20+ years of experience working with children on the autism spectrum, combined with his personal experiences raising his own children, have yielded time-tested strategies, and results.

He provides an easy-to-follow, 4-step model that will improve your everyday relationships with the children in your life:

  1. Managing your own emotions by adjusting your expectations
  2. Learning strategies to calm a meltdown in the moment
  3. Understanding why a meltdown occurs
  4. Creating plans to prevent future meltdowns.
