Recently I found this very helpful because time out doesnt help in my sons case he may actually bang the door or damage the things.If he becomes violent and one may think that he will not come easily to his nortmal self then we do some activity that he enjoys like ot ball massage,playing hide n seek etc,Initially he is reluctant but after i start he forgets about the outburst.sOMETIMES i hve to do it for 2 to 4 times a day.Hope this will help.
