Pediatric neurology: Autism is a complicated condition that is not yet full understood. Many tactics have been used to deal with tantrums including a treats/rewards-based system, planned ignoring, counting, and even surgery. See a pediatric neurologist for further evaluation. http://www.autism-help.org/behavior-tantrums-aspergers.htm
