My precious princess is 9 years old. She is a pretty high functioning Autistic child who at 9 is speaking and starting to read. The one thing I can't figure out is how to toilet train her. She has a diagnosis of "Leaky Gut" and is seeing a specialist to help with it. The medical part is on it's way to being fixed our problem is that our daughter just doesn't care about being dirty. I've tried the reward way, I've tried positive reinforcement, we've written social stories and we are currently seeing a psychiatrist but nothing seems to be working. Anyone have any ideas?
