11 Year old Melt downs

by An upset Mom

over the past few years my son at the drop of a hat will have these 2 year old like melt downs. He yells, throws things shakes his bed hits the wall. He screams no when I try to tell him to come to me.

When he thinks i am going to physically remove him he will move, I direct him to the steps where he has to sit for about 10 minutes to calm down. He does calm down. He comes about and he apologizes and knows exactly what he did. He knew he was out of control and says he just cant control himself. Need ideas how to prevent this.

He has SPD and needs sensory input. but this is just for example his sister made him angry and then he flies off the handle.
