My DS is 2 years old and has recently starting throwing tantrums. He is currently being assessed for autism by his paeditrician and starting early intervention this year. His tantrums are getting quite bad and he is throwing plates/ anything in reach at me and trying to harm himself ie hitting head on tiles/walls. I am at a loss on how to deal with these tantrums. DS is completely non-verbal atm so is getting extremely frustrated that he can't communicate with me. I have tried time outs but they result in him becoming hysterical and kicking walls. DS is very strong and I am unable to hold him during these tantrums to stop him from hurting herself. I do not have a partner either who can help me. Please suggestions on what to do. I try to ignore him but I dont want him injuring himself and his last tantrum he threw a dinner plate at me.
