I would invest in some big boy diapers for him. I cannot help with the autistic part, but it is quite obvious he is coping.

we are fine with the autism. it is nice to finally have a diagnosis after 9 and a 1/2 years we are more worried about the pooping part. He was diagosed september 2011. We have another child with autism so its the norm around here. thanks for the input. I have already bought him depends because he has out grown good nights. my kids are big size wise. We currently have in a diaper for now.
