Well his adoption is be final in the fall. He is 19 months old and I have had him for 9 months. We (our entired family) have bonded beautifully and now he is one of the gang. Before coming to us, he was moved from motel to motel and was even missing for a few weeks.
He is suddenly throwing tantrums. At first I just wanted to hold him and give him affection and that just made it worse. I have started putting him where I can see but not giving him attention and the tantrums take less time. Is there anything I can do to help him? They don't have an obvious cause. Is it normal at this age? May he is testing us? Who knows what he has been through. These truntrums just break my heart, he seems so unhappy in them.
He seems happy, healthy and normal otherwise.

It can be hard to tell the difference between the terrible twos and a possible neurological disorder, such as sensory processing disorder or autism spectrum disorder. You can call Early Intervention and they will assess him for free. It might be worth a call . . . if only to rule these conditions out.

It could be the start of the terrible 2's but go with your gut. If they get worse, I'd contact Early Intervention for a evaluation.
