I'm really struggling at the moment. My son is non verbal not diagnosed only say global development delay at the moment. He has sensory issues. The last couple of months his stripping and poo has got so bad he will smear everywhere if I dont get to him in time. He wants to shut me out his room and strip alot in the day. He can go 5 times a day. I just dont know what to do anymore :(

    Hi @Natty84 - & welcome to the community. I'm sorry to read you're going through such an understandably distressing time with your young son. In addition to the info above may I suggest you look into help that Scope can give to parents, which is called 'Navigate.' Please have a look at the following link: https://www.scope.org.uk/family-services/navigate/    We have had great feedback from parents about 'Navigate,' so hope you'll give it a try.
