5 year old still not potty trained. Refuses to poop on the potty and pees in his room. Has devolopmental delay,but could it be something more?

It is hard to say ..: You did not provide enough clinical information. Does this happen in all environments or does he save these behaviors for you specifically. Does he exhibit periods of time where he is engaged in activities with other children: does he understand the language you use with him, does he have a range of emotions: happy, sad, etc. You should discuss these questions with your Pediatric Specialist- KB ...Read more
