My 4 y.o. DD has had various developmental, speech and language delays pretty much since birth. She also has some sensory issues, mainly under-sensitivity ones. She's constantly moving, isn't bothered when she falls or gets slightly hurt, and doesn't notice a lot of things. Unfortunately this is also causing problems with potty training.
It's weird because she'll tell me she has to go potty if we're at the mall or in a store, but never when we're at home or at school. She's not bothered by being wet, and honestly doesn't even notice sometimes.
She's been wearing panties all day for the last couple of weeks at the suggestion of her early intervention team and her preschool teacher. She can stay dry if she's constantly reminded to go to the bathroom, but not if she's left to her own devices. She's had one accident at school in the last 2 weeks, and that was when she had 2 substitutes and they apparently didn't fully grasp my telling them "she needs to be frequently told to go to the bathroom or she'll have an accident.
Today I'm at the end of my rope. Not only did she have an accident at her "nap" time, but she had the accident while having sneaked into her brother's room and peed on his pillow which happened to be on the floor. She's due to start kindergarten in the fall, but if she's not fully potty trained then there's no way I can send her. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them!
