Toilet training an 8 year old boy.

I’ve posted about my 8 year old son. Well I said he’d only poop and pee in a plastic training potty not the toilet. I said he got kicked out of school. Well we took the potty away we took the diapers away and he goes everywhere but the toilet. We don’t know what else to do. It’s not encopresis he’s seen a therapist she said everything is normal as has his doctor. We’re tempted to just give the potty back. It’s better then him going in his pants or on the floor. Also we can’t him out in public unless he’s wearing a diaper.
