Autism: Controversial Methods of Managing Behaviors

December 5, 2012

This online article from ABC News is very interesting. It details what happens when students throw tantrums and get out of control. Hold restraints, secluded rooms with padded walls and in some places a form of shock therapy.

Those who have witnessed severe tantrums know that children can sometimes get violent and become a danger to himself and others.  The measures can be seen by some as cruel and barbaric. Others say it doesn’t curb the bad behavior, but rather intensifies it.

There has to be another way. What is a cool down effect that has worked for you?
