Meltdowns are a maladaptive behavior that occurs when a child engages in two or more behaviors such as hitting, kicking, biting, or flailing on the floor. These behaviors are a result of wanting access to something or wanting to escape a situation.

In this lesson, the behavior is discussed and solutions are provided for who to redirect the child back to appropriate behavior and provide positive reinforcement once the child is back on track.
