|Without more info, it's difficult to say whether it's attention-seeking behavior, sensory, or anxiety-related. It's even harder if he can't tell you. It is, of course, easier to fix if you know the trigger. That being said, a motivator may be the best way to go. Maybe you could have a reward chart. He earns this treat/reward the next morning when his bed stays dry all night. If the reward provides extra closeness with you and attention, you'll probably kill 2 birds with one stone. Keep in mind, that Autistic children relive memories. If he is trying to get a certain reaction, it may have nothing to do with your reaction to it now. The answer would lie in the memory. What happened the very first time it happened? Or what happened or failed to happen just before he did it the first time. ↑|
Your child is not as concerned about the wetting as you are and it may not be deliberate. My grandson was wetting himself several times at night in spite of being potty trained. I too thought it was deliberate, however, I learned that he was too busy watching TV, playing, whatever to be concerned and he did not care about being wet. I hope this helps.
