A meltdown can be a terrifying experience for a highly sensitive child and for people witnessing it. This guide gives you the confidence to understand what having a meltdown means, and the knowledge to provide support and comfort.
We help you to navigate the reasons why meltdowns happen and how to prevent them where possible, as well as the vital need to be compassionate and caring with yourself and others when they do occur.
