So far today, Gavin has had 2 “accidents” where he wet himself. He wasn’t sleeping or anything like that. In fact he had been awake for a while. I know it’s not uncommon for ASD kids to get wrapped up in what they are doing and maybe “forget” to go potty but is that something common in older kids as well?
I concerned for a number of reasons but mostly because this is not typical for him. I think we’ll call the doc today and see what, if anything at all, we should be doing. Maybe he’s drinking to much water? I mean, he does go through a ton of water, mostly due to the lithium. I’m going to start setting a timer and making him try potty just to keep him remembering to go. That’s about all I can think to do.
We are supposed to go somewhere in a little bit and he has gone through his clean underwear this morning. Now I have to rush some laundry so we can still go.
I just wish sometimes, that things would just slow down a little bit. If I could spend as much time being productive as I do putting out the fires, I’d get a while lot more accomplished.
Does anyone else have similar issues with there ASD kids? What have you done to help?
