 Talk to the school about the issues and see what they say. As for potty training, keep at it and try to be flexible with your training style. If something isn't working anymore than go with another approach. I have a 3 1/2 yo ASD son and we are still working on it. However, the more I keep at it, the better he is getting. I once tried just stopping training till he was ready for about five months and he just stopped trying. So now I stick with it even if it is fustrating for me. Good Luck!

My daughter has an aide at school, she is 4 and we are still working on potty training. Her aide will help change her thoughout the day. Its pretty common with autism, our kids take a bit longer to learn...

Potty training is frustrating with ANY child but even more so with our ASD kids! I have no magic answer except that I was very persistent and patient...eventually he'll understand and get it!
