Default I got a screecher!

I have a 16 month old dcb that does not talk at all. He says "eh eh eh" for everything. Now he screeches. When I say screech, I mean screams at the tops of his lungs when he doesnt' get his way, when someone takes something away, when he wants something etc. In other words, all the time. lol. It is driving me nuts!! How can I get him to stop. Obviously, when he does it, I tell him no no, talk softer etc.

I have a calm-down corner, and that is where screamers and criers go to pull themselves together. It's a corner where they can't see the other kids and can look at books and has a few sensory items to help them soothe themselves. At 16 months, some kids may be able to do this, some may not. I would try sitting with him in the calm down corner and introducing items to him and explaining that when we're upset, we can come here until we feel better. I had one like that, too, and at 2.5, he is still "high strung", but deals with things better.
