I just wanted to let everyone know that Lost and Tired is experiencing more growing pains. I’ve been on the phone with tech support all evening trying to get everything resolved.
It appears that I’m back up and running.
I hoping that things are better now. Please let me know of you experience any problems.
I really appreciate your patience. 🙂
Yes with the regressing. Potty training in particular seemed to take forever. Then bed-wetting took forever. Nothing moves slowly in Autism-land. It’s just that one day you realize they aren’t “doing that” anymore, and you’re surprised how it slipped past you. Try not to think of the worst thing that could happen.
@hudginsvicky thanks 🙂
Hoping for you guys once things with Gavin can begin to settle down and stabilize, both Emmett and Elliot will start to stabilize themselves too. They both are going through a lot of anxiety and stress, and possibly even some PTSD related things too. Gavin’s tantrums were traumatic to them I’m sure.
Also, Emmett is still growing and learning too. He could always be going through regular ‘stages’ kids go through, just complicated by the ASD and such.
Hope you guys figure out answers for this too.
@Silachan very well said. Thank you very much. 🙂
We had my son nearly potty trained at 2 1/2 years old then he just completely regressed losing that skill and the limited speech he had, among many other skills. It was very hard! We just had to learn that he was doing the best HE could and work on his timetable. I know, easier said than done! By 5 he was still barely verbal, but was beginning to advance again with speech but not toileting. A little over a year later he is only wetting himself 1 – 2 times daily, speaking in sentences, and able to use a razor scooter himself! I credit a LOT to the work his autism school has done for him. Are you able to get decent 1 on 1 instruction time for him with your current services? I truly believe that the fact my son’s class has 4 staff and 4 students is THE reason he has advanced so much,
@ca276 you raise a good point. Emmett gets lots of one on one time. I’m suspecting that it has to do with stress.
