Customer Question
My 3 year old was...
My 3 year old was diagnosed with autism. He has some language and understands everything you say. Hi is very high functioning. His issue is that he is a screamer! he screams when he don't get what he wants at that moment or when hes mad. I have tried ignoring it like his ABA therapist has suggested. Time out does not work either. I have no idea what else I can do to have him stop. I will give him the proper way of asking so that he doesn't scream and will not give him what he is asking for until he says it in a calm voice. Any suggestions?
