I have an 8 yr old son w/ autism. He's pee-potty trained just fine. Has just started going pee at school this yr. Last yr he would hold it til he got home. Absolutely will not poop-potty train. He poops in his underwear and then we put it in the toilet and clean him w/ wipes and wash out the underwear. He pooped in the potty twice when he was first potty training . . . just a couple of years ago. Never has since and any talk of it or trying to get him to when we know he's pooping leads to a major meltdown. Let me also mention, I have a big boy . . . he's 4'8" and 130 lbs. Any advice?? I welcome any advice at all. I have a 40 yr old brother-in-law w/ severe autism and he trained just like any other kid so no help from the grandmother. I don't know what to do. Thanks.
