How to calm down an autistic child

usually suffer children with autism experience frequent breakdowns, when something happens to them in a state of disorder and malaise, so it is very important to know how to deal with them in that situation, and how best way to calm them down.

 • 1 - If the child can speak, ask him quietly what bothers him. If they were disturbed by a television commercial or loud noise, try moving them to a quiet place. Know that an individual with autism may lose speech at severe stress (although he can speak under normal circumstances), which is because of excessive stimulation of the patient's nervous system, if you happen to be with someone who has the ability to speak ask only questions answered Yes or no, let him He responds by nodding his head positively or in denial.
2 - Close the devices such as the TV, and get rid of any sounds even if the sounds of music, and turn off the lighting. The person with autism usually has sensory organs such as hearing and vision more sensitive than the natural person, it seems as if the intensity of light and sound double the pain.
3 - Show them to massage Many people with autism have benefited from massage therapy, so we recommend that you put your autistic person in a comfortable position, gently rub forehead, massage shoulder, foot and back, and make sure your movements are thin and careful.
4 - Try not to obstruct or prevent involuntary movements. It is common for a person to become autistic when he has a panic attack with a series of repetitive and repetitive involuntary movements, and many people make mistakes when trying to stop those movements; it helps to calm people with autism. Examples of involuntary movements are tremors, clapping hands or fingers. These movements may help the autistic person to calm down. But if you see that he may hurt himself by hitting his head with a wall or for example, he may injure himself, then he must intervene immediately and try to prevent him. With all your effort, we feel that the best solution here is to try to distract the victim.
5 - Show the patient to gently press the body Try to make the patient sit down and then hug him from the back gently, and let your cheek on his head, and then press hands on his chest a little and gently, which is one of the ideal ways to calm down.
6 - If the panic attack is accompanied by violent beating , try to remove any objects they may use in harming themselves, you should also hug his head or put it on a cushion so as not to hurt her.
7 - If the touch does not bother him, take the opportunity and throw it on his shoulder. I touched the victim's shoulder and showed affection towards him. This may help calm and relax. But if he shows that he does not like to touch, do not take it on a personal load, they simply can not afford to endure at that time.
 • 8 - Try to help the injured in removing any uncomfortable clothes worn. During a panic attack, an autistic person may tear his clothes, such as scarves may, for example, increase their feeling of distress
9 - If you can carry the injured person or accompany him to another place quiet, do. If you can not ask anyone else in the room to leave. Explain to them that the unexpected noise and movement may increase the condition of the autistic worse.
10 - Ask for help immediately if the situation worsens or if you can not deal with the injured person. Parents, teachers, and caregivers may know how to provide the special assistance that a patient needs.
