  • What were her meds for? Not familiar with those. It might be the anxiety of the move. How old is she?

  • Wow! Your story is so familiar. I too went through the exact same thing when my niece now 7 was 4 at the time, and guess what? I asked my doctor for assistance, and they sat up in home therapy for her, and she is doing great. She's now going to the bathroom alone without accidents, she never wet the bed, but she was pooping on herself. Trained therapies are excellent for children with autism and adhd. My niece has mild autism, but she is extremely smart, straight "A" student, but she have some behavior issues that need to be addressed at times. Talk to your doctor to see if you guys qualify for in home therapy, it is a lifesaver, believe me it really is.

  • it's probly the move. some kids don't adapt to change very well. i'd say just keep up the routine you had before you moved, naps and bedtimes at the same time, eat at the same time you used to, basically keep everything the same as much as possible. have her go potty every few hours, to be on the safe side.

  • It sounds to me like she is regressing because of the move. It was a big change for her and she has to get used to a new routine and all. I would say that taking her off of the meds probably is affecting her as well.

  • Is she constipated? I know you said she is having loose stools, but did they check her belly? Sometimes severe constipation can cause incontinence of stool (it just leaks around the blockage) and it can also cause loss of bladder control. And with a move, possibly she was uncomfortable going to the bathroom at the new home or too excited to remember to go!
