I stare in shocked silence. I look from the broken glass to my brother. I'm just utterly speechless. "Dude" he says, looking confused "what's wrong?" I'm speaking in barely a whisper: "I...l..I'm an only child."
This chart is good information about meltdowns. *** But please remember that adults with ASD have "meltdowns" too, although they are very different***. As an adult it's not possible to throw a tantrum so the issues shown on the diagram manifest differently. (And differently in different ASD adults.) What's needed is acceptance and helping that person decompress and destress before a meltdown happens. -- http://www.theautismdad.com
While growing up an only child definitely had its perks — think undivided attention, the entire back seat during car trips, forced independence and maturity, and strong imagination development — I always felt like there was something missing, and I still do today.
