am trying to potty train my son, he is on the spectrum but we do not have a formal diagnosis yet. He also has SPD and some other health issues. My questions is how do you potty train a kid who doesn't even realize they are peeing? We tried to let him run around naked but he seems to not realize when the pee is coming out of his penis. It is hard enough dealing with the other sensory issues but if I can't help him understand that he is going pee how will I ever potty train him? We sat him on a potty and he did go pee but he didn't realize that he had gone pee till after and he saw it in the potty. I just feel lost! We need to potty train him because he keeps getting horrible rashes and he won't tell us that he has gone pee or pooped. Any suggestions?
