My son Liam is 4yrs old and has Autism. He has been potty training for 3 months now and doing really well. we were at the point that he only wore pull-ups at night to bed. About 3 weeks ago he was sick and had a bad bout of constipation and now he will not poop on the toilet. He poops in is undies, on my floor, but will not on the potty. I will sit him on it for 1/2 hr 45min and have to keep putting him back on when he gets off and he still wont go then as soon as he is let up he run into the other room and poops. I don't know what to do. I do have to say that the next week was his last week of preschool with his Fav. teacher and he was getting ready for summer school and we are packing at home to move so i know he is being thrown a lot of changes at once.
Have any of you been through this and figured a way out? even the candy when he poops is not working this time..
