How do I get a fever?

Hold the thermometer as still as you can with one hand, and rub your thumb as fast as you can until your desired fever is reached!! Any Suggestions here?

    I have a cousin with autism and he often has tantrums and screams! For kids with autism, it is very hard for them to express their-selves,especially if they cannot talk! This is probably why your son is acting in that way! Try to remain calm and make everything quiet! Turn off the t!vs, all the music, and make the setting calm and spend time with him! Even if youre laying down with him on your bed or playing a game with him, I think the important thing is to show him that you are there for him and it seems like thats the reassurance he needs! Rub his back and try to calm him down to let him know it is okay, this might relax him! I understand what this is like, my cousin is often moody and he cant communicate with us to let us know why he is crying! This is frustrating I know, and sometimes nobody in the house can sleep, like in your situation! Since my cousin cannot talk verbally, the school gave his mom this laminated paper with pictures of different things such as: a toilet(meaning he needs to go to the bathroom), a hamburger (indicating lunch), a cup of water(thirsty) a bed(meaning hes tired), etc! Hell bring it to his mom and point to what he wants! I really suggest that you try to get this! I dont know your situation, because every child with autism is different, but if your son cant talk, I think it would be a lot easier if you got that!
