I need some tips. My gorgeous son (6.5 asd) has come on in leaps and bounds since he was diagnosed. We have always struggled with bowel movements though. He is prone to soiling pants and doing bits and pieces in the bath (warm water seems to relax him). Tonight has taken the biscuit though - I went up to get him out and there is a huge turd floating in the bath with him up one end trying to avoid it ! I am used to constant cleaning of the bath but am feeling a bit shaky after this. Does anyone else have similar problems and any tips for trying to resolve the issue ? I am not sure where to go from here...sad

Oh dear. I have a 6 year old asd son, so know how he would react to this.
My son has bowel problems relating to asd, he became over impacted and had seepage (sounds similar to your son) he basically became un toilet trained at about 4.5 (luckily we are back on track) we took him to the paed and she gave me movicol, which helped us lots. Hope this helps.
