Hygiene. As if Autism wasn’t challenging enough. How do you deal with hygiene issues? Gavin is having issues with bathroom hygiene, like cleaning himself up after going potty. Sometimes he cleans himself up and sometimes he doesn’t. He won’t talk about it and won’t left us help.
The other big problem and it’s a big problem is that he sometimes doesn’t want to pee in the potty so he just pee’s his pants. He doesn’t change them afterwards. He just goes on like nothing happened. We just realized this the other day. He says that “sometimes he just doesn’t want to get up to go potty”. He gets engrossed in what he’s doing and won’t walk away.
What are we supposed to do with that? I guess we at least know where the smell was coming from now.
