DD (classic Autism) had been potty trained since summer (almost 4 yr) and has not had a single accident since then. She would come right up to us and sign toilet and in we would go and she would do her business. Well in the last two weeks she has had 2 urine and 3 bm accidents (almost 4 but we caught her grunting).<br>
Anyone elses kids have backslides like this and come out of it? I just cant understand how she could be doing so well with it for months and now this. I don't know if it's regression..behavioral or what. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:

Mine is younger, but I'm interested in the responses since I have the same problem. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lurk.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lurk">:

Sometimes it can be a problem with their digestive system. I know that when I thought Emma and Angela were in underwear during the day for good, a couple weeks later, Emma started having lots of bladder accidents. It turns out that she had a urinary tract infection without any usual symptoms. Once the infection was cleared up, she got dry again. I was relieved since all I heard out of Emma was "When can I wear my Princess panties again?!" for a good week and a half.<br>
I'd record what your child has eaten in the past couple of days and if there's a pattern in the accidents based on when she's eaten. It could be that something wasn't agreeing with her system, and the end result is bladder and bowel accidents.<br><br>

Did anything change in her routine?<br><br>
My dd trained a year ago, exactly, at age 4 years 4 months. She did great, even at night.<br><br>
Then over this summer, age 5, she started having accidents. She's still back in pull ups for school and at night.<br><br>
No one seems to have any insight as to why or what to do about it. Best I can guess, the accidents started at camp when she may have been afraid to go to a new toilet, and there was no one there that she was as comfortable with as me or her preschool teachers. What I can't figure out is why they continued.<br><br>
Now, we're retraining. And, it's like starting all over again with reminders and lots of accidents. We're also working harder on her sensory processing in case that has something to do with her not noticing it.

My nt does this (my spectrum child isn't pt). So I do think it can be pretty typical, although frustrating I know!<br>
I know for my son he either gets too busy and doesn't want to stop and it also has happened when a routine has changed (like summer break and going back to school). Hang in there. I bet if you just keep at it she will come back around!
