my son is high functioning but definately has his typical autistic delays (socially, behaviorally, and the worst, stopped using the toilet almost 3 years ago. No one, and we have seen them ALL, seems to be able to help us or him with this serious problem. It is NOT encopresis (withholding). He will NOT have "accidents" at school, but when he comes home, it all starts, every single day!!!! We are below rock bottom at this point due to the fact that it has gone on for so long and it began when he attended a "special needs" camp the summer it started. I cried everyday that I dropped him off and picked him up. My gut said, whoa! What is this camp, and should my son be here? I can't go back to the past and I don't have a magic looking glass to help me see why or how this all started. I just know that I am tired of living Groundhog day everyday!!!! Help!!Thoughts!Suggestions!????
