My 7 year old autistic son struggles every night when the sun goes down. He starts melting down because the day is ending. It doesn't matter how many things we've packed into the day or that it might only be 4 pm and still hours until bedtime. He becomes overwhelmed with sadness every single day. He's highly intelligent, but any explanation I give or attempts to comfort is not enough to stop the daily meltdowns. Any suggestions?
