Kids often have meltdowns. It happens especially in the gap between 2 and 4 years of age, and it is a distinct feature of their brain development. However, the meltdowns are different in kids with autism.
They occur when children with special needs are overwhelmed with the situations they find themselves in, and they react intensely with uncontrolled behavior, which can be screaming, crying, or outbursts of aggression.
This is exactly what happened with Regina Margaret’s daughter, who was diagnosed with severe autism. The mother took 3-year-old Darla to the Arizona Malls, but the girl seemed to be distressed with the noise and the crowds, so she started having a meltdown.
