This is a great way of keeping a record of a child with special needs when they have a melt down or a panic. Melt downs can be shown in a range of ways, these can all be recorded. If we look for a pattern of events we can often analyse what has changed and work out a possible trigger. These sheets help us to do this more effectively. This is a good way to support children with autism, once we know what the trigger is, we can often work around it or do more teaching of skills needed and give more support to the child to prevent them happening in the future for the trigger we have analysed.
