Because of the training I received in Movement Method, I was able to read G. reaction and observe the triggers in the classroom on time to avoid a severe reaction.
When I noticed him being triggered, we did a quick walk outside with the class while jumping measurement conversions like how many days are in a week? How many hours are in a day?
Something we had to do during that lesson anyway, we just adjusted and used the MM philosophy.
G. recovered before having a melt down and the entire class benefitted by getting the practice, but also allowing for oxytocin to be produced and being more attentive during the rest of the lesson.
