Our expert says:
When you say STILL SOILING, do you mean that he has NEVER been clean and has never NOT soiled ?
BY 8 of course one would expect a child to be continent, though some may start soiling again for a time if troubled emotionally in various ways.
There are some physical problems which may lead to a child not being able mto stop soiling, but presumably the paeds have checked for all of those.
Espeially as emotional complications have beun to be notable, surely he ought to be seen and thoroughly assessed by a good child psychiatrist or child psychologist , who can also advise on behavioural methods to help encourage him not to soil, and to help him not to be so discouraged.
I don't know of the slightest shred of good evidence that Play Therapy or Sensory Integration therapy are of the slightest benefit in such situations, and disagree with people offering unproven "therapies" on the basis of laims rather than good evidence.
