I have a toddler whose parents report that he will tantrum/scream/cry for up to 2 hours without stopping, and that he tantrums all day.
He is new to me, and we are working on taking turns, making eye contact, functional play with toys, and single word utterances. Session 1 went okay, session two, he could not be calmed down. He screamed and kicked, tried to kick or throw anything that got close to him. He has a few single words so this definitely interferes with his communication and causes frustration, but I suspect this is behavioral as well.
How do you structure your sessions with kids like this? When he escalates I don't give him a big reaction, wait for him to calm (if he does), try beginning a new activity. I know what I'm doing as far as treatment but his behaviors made treating impossible last time.
Recommended a behavioral consult
Hi all! What I am looking for....
A place that.... -can hold up to 150 people
-doesn't require me to use their caterer/or is reasonable (we are probably just going to go with pizza, honestly)
-is capable of being equipped with a dance floor (even if we bring it, flat ground)
-capability to hold the ceremony is not necessary, but an added perk (we're considering doing the official marriage thing without all the people beforehand at the court house)
-I like the idea of a barn for the reception, but not a stinky one
-Outdoor sounds fun/a place people can go explore, but an indoor area would he preferred.
-planning for a September event.
-budget for the venue - let's keep it under $5,000
-I'm game for undtraditional
