Sorry I need to get this off my chest, I suspect it's going to be something I need to deal with more often so any helpful suggestions appreicated too.
DS is 5 1/2 and we are going through the process of assesments with him. We suspect ASD, we've also been told selctive mustism and sensory processing but I guess they are part of the ASD.
Just spent the weekend with family who made some oh so helpful suggestions about how to deel with some of his behaviour. Really if I though all our toilet issues would be solved with a travel potty do you not think I would have tried it by now (though how you expect a nearly 6 year old to fit on one I'm not sure). Yes, thank you we have tried a star chart and no it hasn't solved the problem!
For a while I have wondered if they forget how old he is, as his behaviour is often compared to that of his 3 year old cousin. I accept that a lot of the behaviour woudl be age appropriate if he was three, however he's not. Starting school seems to have changed a lot of people's view, before I think people just assumed he was younger, but apparently not everyones.
