Meltdown

We’re going through a transitional period in our household. School starts next week. Monday is D-day and Liam is Chernobyl. The most frustrating aspect of his meltdowns is, he can’t articulate what the problem is. Liam is fully verbal, but still takes speech therapy to help give him the words to express his feelings. I have a feeling it has to do with school starting, but I can’t figure out the triggers. We’ve had no less than 3 full-blown meltdowns today, and to be honest, I’m exhausted.

One thought on “Meltdown

  1. I know how hard this must be for you. It will likely take years to sort out all the little triggers and also the things that calm him. I’ve watched my cousin struggle and work with her son who is not autistic but is mentally challenged and wasn’t supposed to live beyond the age of 8. Harlan must be nearing 30 now. And Patty has battled on for years. I admire the way you are being so proactive in the middle of all the chaos. I would say that Liam has a wonderful mother. 🙂 Hang in there.
