The Autistic Meltdown

This is a poem that I wrote that was then made into a film. The film is about one of many difficult days for my son and I.

Shopping for groceries should be a very easy task but whenever I take my autistic son to the supermarket. His senses become overwhelmed because of his surroundings and he often has a full blown meltdown in the store.  When he first started to do this, I had no idea how to help him.  It was a heartbreaking experience for both of us.

This is a true experience of one of those upsetting days.
