    Has anyone dealt with encopresis (soiling beyond potty training age) with their child who has adhd? If so, what did you do about it?

    My little brother had that issue for awhile as a kid. My mother put him on a schedule basically, even so far as setting alarms on his phone for certain times of the the day that seemed more common for him to need to go. They basically told us it came from him not noticing body cues that he might need to go soon, until the body stopped giving cues and just acted. the schedule helped to at least give him specific points of time that he could devote to relieving himself, scheduled meals might help to.

    Tried everything in the world and couldn’t improve it. Removed gluten from his diet for another reason and the problem disappeared within 3 days. He was only gluten free a couple years but the problem never came back.
