Do you know the difference between a tantrum and a meltdown?

It’s important to know.  In children with behavioral challenges at a young age, certain strategies used for a child having a tantrum will not work with a student with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Presenter Kathy Kaluza Morris will help parents and professionals learn more about:

  • Determining if a child is having a tantrum or meltdown
  • Strategies for helping with a tantrum
  • Using strategies for prevention, intervention and after the meltdown

Kathy’s background includes presenting all over the world and spending 46 years as an educator. Kathy and her husband, Guy, also “walked the walk and talked the talk” after the premature birth of their twin sons, Kirk and Drew.
