Mommy's Tried Everything
(Hauppauge, NY )
I have a 6 year old son with SPD. He was diagnosed at 3 and has received OT services through CPSE and privately.
When he transitioned to Kindergarten they took the OT away. This is the problem i still can not get a handle on. He will not wipe himself after a bowel movement. That means when he is at school and has to go he holds it.
Same thing happened when we had a babysitter for the day when we went to see a show. The result is then sometimes constipation.
How can i get him to wipe himself. I told him if he gets dirty, he can wash it off with soap and water right after and he would never know it was there.
I am hopeless with this issue.
