    • Create a routine and a visual schedule to make your child’s day more predictable
    • Use timers to help your child understand the routine
    • Use a 5-point scale to help your child explain his/her emotions
    • Have a quiet space in your house for your child to de-escalate
    • Make time throughout the day for movement
    • Prepare your child for changes in routine ahead of time so s/he isn’t surprised
