6 yr. old Autisitic son is having wetting accident on bus on way home from school and has now generalized to carseat at home.He has the ability to hold and has been potty trained for quite some time.He can tell when he has to go and we never had a problem with him staying dry. He often would "fake" by grunting to request going to the bathroom for attention. That eventually faded away by ignoring. He has had new teaching staff and aides at the start of school. Wetting accidents began happening. Scheduled to go every 30 min. implemented,yet he was averaging 3-4 a day with schedule. Schedule was not adjusted. Wetting con't for 8 days. Wetting did somewhat stop to 1 x a day school and on bus ride home at present (has not been exstiguished). While at home no wetting accidents, and we are maintaining a scheduled bathroom at 15 -20 min. until wetting accidents stop else where to prevent them from being generalized to home.We have him go to bathroom before leaving our home 2x 15 min. apart. Yet he intentionally pushes any tiny bit out . Have used edible reinforcers and increased outings to try to decrease attention seeking behavior. Hoping if I can get it to stop in our carseat, he will then generalized to bus (which is happening everyday) Could use some ideas as to how to respond to this issue.
