Maintaining peace and tranquillity in your household can be a challenge. Life is busy–we get it! But creating a calming and tranquil environment for your little one with Autism Spectrum Disorder is of the utmost importance. 

Most children with ASD need tranquillity and routine to maintain an appropriate temperament. The mere chaos of everyday life can throw your child into a fit, which can be difficult to reserve once the meltdown has begun. 

Although we fully believe that in-home therapy is the best course of action to help your child manage their disruptive outbursts, there are some things that you can do on your own to calm your child and mitigate the intensity of emotional outbursts, such as: 

  • Talk to Your Child About Their Emotions– We all need to talk about our feelings–it is human nature! Working alongside an ABA therapist can help you connect with your child and learn the best practices when talking to your child about their emotions.

  • Implement Breathing Techniques- Studies show that breathing is essential to relaxation. Deep breathing exercises can help your child regulate their emotions and reverse tantrums. 
  • Create a Safe Space– ABA therapists recognize the importance of creating a safe space for children with ASD. When your child is starting to melt down they can retreat to their safe space and enjoy soothing comforts that restore peace, tranquillity, and sensory balance. 

Looking for other ways to help your child cope with the chaos of life? In-home therapy can help you and your child find the best coping techniques for learning how to manage emotional outbursts.
