How to "Read" Your Autistic Loved One

After much discussion about overwhelm, rumble, and meltdowns with my partner, I decided that it might be helpful to post a short video about what may be helpful for someone watching their loved one go through a state of dysregulation. (Take what serves you and leave the rest.)

Also, I realized I had some theory of mind issues in the video. When I'm talking about hitting one string on a piano or guitar, I'm talking about resonance and how all the other strings of that sort will vibrate. In the same respect, someone in overwhelm will resonate with their loved one's emotions and this can potentially make the situation worse. 

Keep centered. Keep trying and keep learning.
