My 9 yr old autistic granddaughter gets so caught up in playing or watching TV that she "forgets" to go to the bathroom. Sometimes she goes on her own, but if we see her doing "the dance" and tell her to go, she says she doesn't have to go. Next thing we know, she's changing clothes because they're soiled. She does this in school too and she gets called names. This, obviously, doesn't help her self confidence and she gets defensive. Any suggestions?
