Potty Training Preschooler With SPD
My son is 4 1/2 years old.
He has been peeing in the potty for some time now, however we cannot get him to sit on the toilet to have a BM. He never did sit down to pee, but did it standing up from the beginning. He is tactile defensive and a sensory avoider.
It does seem like he is afraid of the sensation of sitting up on the toilet over a hole. We have a very good stable potty seat and a stool for him to use, but the problem is getting him up there at all! He is not motivated by the promise of reward or being a "big boy".
He is in his second year of preschool and due to start kindergarten in the fall. He is a VERY strong willed child and shows no interest in achieving this milestone. I'm in fear all the time that he will be kicked out of preschool (which he loves) if they find out he's not completely potty-trained.
Also, there's the issue of starting kindergarten. Any suggestions?
