Hi all, im so discouraged. my 3.5 with pdd is always screaming. when asked a question, given a demand -order. when hes happy, when hes frustrated ALL TEH TIME! ive tried rewarding for nto screaming i tried making him repeat teh word or answers without screaming. i ve made him have a screaming corner to let out his frustrations. ive tried time out corners when he absolutely refuses to stop screaming. i NEED HELP ADVICE anything! i understand he gets frustrated easily so i try to stay as calm as possible i even tried riding the wave and ignoring it but it doesnt get better. what else can i do. my lil one is starting to learn this behavior and im nto liking it at all. i even posted happy faces doing SHHH of my wall! i use pictgrams alot with him for everything. but that too now is starting to get boring for him so he yells.

My autistic daughter with Aspergers loves to listen to music on an iPod or radio with ear phones. Maybe it would relax them???

I wonder if you turned on music and gave them ear phones to listen to maybe they would substitute their volume for the music? Music with words, music without words, classical...

Before my daughter was diagnosed with Asperger's, she was diagnosed with Auditory Processing Disorder. I don't understand how, but the therapy for that calmed her down some.

Mine calmed a little down with meds but still screamed. It was an auditory stim for him. Oh man! I do not miss that one. I still find all my ear plugs lying around. My daughter is very screamy too but not in the same way. I am auditory sensitive.

What has your pediatrician recommended? Have you had the child's hearing tested? Also, has it been tested for ADHD? I have seen cases where child screamed quiet a lot till on medication then she acted normal not drugged.

Antonietta, I am so sorry and I know what you are going through. My daughter, now 11, has Asperger's. It seemed like she screamed the first three years of her life. I used to wear ear plugs when I gave her a bath.

My biggest advice is to be sure and give yourself plenty of breaks. I am not a daycare using mommy, but with her, enrolling her in head start for half a day was a life-saver.

I don't know how, but it got better. We persevered. She still throws an occasional screaming fit, but it is maybe one or two a week, and they don't last long. These kiddos do grow up!

I wish I had a magic bullet for you! Maybe someone else does!

Get some ear plugs. Find your happy place. I never found anything. I just had to ride out that phase. Say to yourself "This too shall pass". Sorry I do not have any big words of wisdom. Don't forget to take time for yourself when you can!
