Amazing Resources from Autism Crisis Turnaround!
The ACT (Autism Crisis Turnaround) protocol: Here is a 4-minute YouTube video that gives a very quick overview of the ACT protocol, including two absolutely essential phenomena – one called a Neuro-Crash and the other called S.O.S. (Signals of Stress). It is very, very important to us to change the way that people on the autism spectrum are treated, related to, and cared for – specifically with respect to meltdowns, high anxiety, and extreme, explosive, and so-called “difficult” behaviors. This is why we put everything we had into developing the ACT protocol. To watch the video, click this link: https://youtu.be/DJteMfLa0ns. If you or someone you know is struggling with this kind of challenge, you can watch a more in-depth 25-minute video (free of charge) on this subject by going here: https://www.autismcrisisturnaround.com/step-1-act?cid=8a79cf87-86f5-42ca-84f4-9458697e18ca&eoid=2148190267.
