Time Out Times

I know it's supposed to be "a minute per year" but 2 minutes is not near enough for my son. He is still having a rage fit at that point (he's on the spectrum) his OT suggested around 5 minutes so he has cool down time and time for his real "time out." Does this seem right? I'm looking at getting an hour glass type thing for him to see how much time he has left. Just wanted other mothers to weigh in.
