This book offers tried-and-true solutions to minimize and circumvent the often frightening circumstances that surround the rage cycle, not only for the child with high-functioning autism, but others in the environment as well. A highly practical and user-friendly resource, High-Functioning Autism and Difficult Moments focuses on the reactions of the adults around the child. The authors take the reader through the stages of the rage cycle and emphasize the importance of utilizing the teachable moments before and after a rage episode.

Though this book has a similar title to another book written by Brenda Smith Miles (Asperger Syndrome and Difficult Moments) this new book has a somewhat different slant. It is written with the idea that the underlying emotional dysregulation, based in brain differences, is key to understanding meltdowns. Though the authors offer many of the same strategies as in the previous book, there are newer ones as well, geared to developing more positive behaviors, self-esteem and self-regulation for people with high functioning ASD. I recommend it highly and have used it with some of my own patients.
