Regulate Overly & Under-Responsive Behaviors (video)
Some people with autism can be both over- and under-responsive at different times. Our job is to help regulate this balance back to homeostasis by either pointing out what the person did not respond to, or suppressing what has been over-responded to, depending on each situation. When a person with autism becomes alert to changes in homeostasis and aware of the resolution, appropriate communication has occurred, leading to stronger social relationships.
