I think it is global developmental delay?

Have you tried physically moving him away every single time and distracting with something completely new?

Would social stories help......he may be too young.
I think I would pick him up and cuddle hold until he calms down.

I am sure this is common in toddlers without gdd.

Thanks MIAonline! Learn something new everyday!

Stay calm, leave easy going phone messages, don't let her think she is in trouble, easier said I know......
