First of all, ignore the tantrum! then find time when he is calm and maybe go through some flash cards with him. just simple baby flash cards that you can find at most any store. Give him the oppurtunity to practice words he would use most often. Mommy, daddy, drink, cracker, toy...simple everyday things he would ask for. Allow him to try and be positive. Talk calmly to him and be encouraging. try not to show any frustation. and don't over do the practicing. you want him to enjoy this time. And the whole tantrum screeming thing, ignore it, turn your back towards him for a second, then turn back towards him and speak calmly and soft to him and tell him to take a breath! I hope this helps! good luck!

I know this sounds bad, but I would ignore him and see if he stops. When he stops go over to him and see if you can get him to try to tell you with out yelling. At 18 months he should be saying at least mama, dada, baba and some more. I know every child learns at their own rate but maybe I would call your pedatrician and see what they say. Maybe is has a hearing problem that you are unaware of?
