We are currently waiting for a possible diagnosis of Aspergers for my 8yo daughter, although she has an average to above average iq.
She has always had sensory issues and is sensory seeking for touch, amongst other things. She was toilet trained at 2-3 and night trained not long after. But from 4 she regressed during the day, in that she often wet or leaked into her knickers both with urine and faeces (she's never had accidents at night). More recently it has been getting worse for her: she's now just outright incontinent. We've had to resign to putting her into nighttime nappies during the day, as you can notice the smell on her underpants and the wet patches where she has been sitting otherwise.
We have taken her to numerous paediatricians about this, but none have been able to help even remotely solve the problem. I am sensing that it may be partly psychological and partly physiological (her social issues do cause her stress when the others reject her).
Has anyone else encountered this problem? If so, how did you go about resolving it, and did it get resolved?
Apart from being embarrassing for her, it's very frustrating for us.
