How to assist with toilet training before big school?!

Our five year old starts prep next year. We I’ve got the wee part locked in but a bowel movement and he won’t use the toilet. Diagnosed ASD level 2, anxiety, dyspraxia (speech and motor). Are there any suggestions on what we could try to support him in overcoming this before going to prep next year?

We found toilet timing the best for this- dr suggested a very light/gentle tablet taken straight after dinner. We had a “toilet phone” meaning had special games on it played on a timer in the morning while on the toilet. Got his body into the routine after just 2-3 weeks from memory. Lasted until around yr 3 when he started having a lot of anxiety and school refusal started :( would get him good again in school holidays, only to slowly decline again as soon as went straight back to school :(

For us there was just no pressure at all. Lots of exposure and talking about undies, using pull ups instead of nappies, praising any an all interest with no criticism or negativity about nappies or not using the toilet

I would suggest lots of practice. Social stories, visuals and possibly a rewards chart. Good luck xx
