SixBlindKids – Obed Recovering From An Autism Meltdown/Tantrum

Obed, who is 13 years old, and was born blind without eyes, and has cerebral palsy and severe intellectual disabilities as well as autism, sometimes has autistic meltdowns and tantrums. Sometimes he exhibits self-injurious behaviors such as head banging during these meltdowns. Mom and Bethany get him calmed down and redirected here with some love, hugs, and some techniques, such as counting, and giving him drinks of water.

A little bit of a loving touch and a soothing voice goes a long way!
