Google interoception- it’s part of the sensory system where they simply can’t feel what is happening inside them, where the messages get mixed up from the body to the brain. Do you mean he is frightened of the process? Of the actual toilet? My son hates the splash…

We’ve got him to sit on the toilet he’s not aware when he does soil himself or do number twos in his nappy and We do take him every hour

One trick we tried was undies inside the nappy so they can feel the sensation of the wee. My girl had no idea what she was meant to do until after learning what the sensation felt like.

Have you tried making up a visual step by step routine as to how to go to the toilet? Or is it more anxiety based? I know a few kids with autism whom have behaviours have high levels of anxiety

Just been catching up on all the awesome advice in this thread. What an awesome community & brains trust we have 🥰🧡 Could it be that it’s not the right time for toilet training for him? If he’s not understanding the concept or aware of the feeling leading up to going to toilet?

Sometimes they aren’t ready for toilet training. My son was 3 when he finally used the toilet and then nothing for 2 months. We just kept encouraging him to try it. We used visuals but never pushed him. After many many misses, he got it together. He was 6 years old. Good luck 🙂
