Feeling overwhelmed today

My two youngest boys have autism, they are ages 4 and 2, y two year old has been whining and screaming all day. I cant figure out what he wants or needs since he cant talk. Does anybody have any suggestions.

    Thank you I hope so, my four old was never this bad with whining but my two year old cant detach away from me at all....he follows me from room to room all day long, and all he does is cry

      we have started working with him on sign language, the only one he knows and uses so far is "all done" But my four year old knows a lot of the sign language because he just started saying a few words about six months ago. I'm hoping the younger one will either get it from watching him or somehow my four year old can teach him in their own little way

        Hi Melissa my four year old is considered to have austic disorder, but he could also fall into the categories of childhood disintegrative disorder and rett syndrome because his has something to do with genetics. We found out that he was born with a depletion in his 15th chromosome. My two year old falls between Aspergers syndrome and PDD-NOS.
        Hello Stefany, I don't think he is sick or anything, he has been running around from time to time playing with his toys as well as eating and drinking just fine. He normally wines through out the anyway, but today was double worse.

          Hi Alissa I'm so glad there are other mothers that have the same thing in common with me when it comes to children on the autism spectrum. The boys father and I are still learning all about the spectrum, we found out about our four year old having it two years ago and got it confirmed about our yougest a month ago. It can be tricky with autism children because they all are different, learn different and perceive things in a different way. Thank you for your prayers.
