Re: Encopresis and Aspergers
I can see where you have some real concerns. Each school district is so different and not very many seem to have enough in their budgets to help everyone who needs it. Hopefully, there'll be help in Mo. I know sometimes families hire educational advocates in order to help them through the system. OT sounds like a good idea, too. Have you had a Sensory Integration Evaluation? They can be helpful. The accepted treatment plan for children with Aspergers is usually working in a group with someone who can do very concrete training. I think 1 to 1 work can help, too. Some of my peers are working with older children who are wanting to start dating, etc. and need guidance on just how to go about it. Have you seen the movie Adam? That, I thought, was hopeful. It sounds like your son has some significant strengths which is great. You're right there is no cure but training and guidance can make a big difference. Have you tried having him have his BM the same time every day, preferably home in the a.m. or later p.m.? It would be great not to have to deal with that in the daytime. Do the teachers at school have a plan on how they deal with it?
