Dad does something ‘Extraordinary’ with Child in Extremely Stressful Moment

1 min

Calming a child during a meltdown can be so stressful. Calming a child who has autism even more so. Will has Autism and his parent’s have found a unique way of helping him.

According to their YouTube page, his parents explain that, “at first we try holding him tight — this gives him deep pressure and doesn’t hurt him. If we were to let go he would hit himself, bang his head on the ground, pull at his hair, bite himself etc etc. If he’s too deep into a meltdown, swinging him in an enclosed swing helps him calm down and his emotions to regulate.”

Watch the video to see Will transition from screaming and crying, to swinging calmly.

What methods do you use to help calm your child?
