Your flapper valve is probably shot. Or you have glosts. One or the other.

ANS 2 - Flapper valves seldom last more than 6-7 years. This is almost certainly the cause for this problem.

The toilet itself is plugged or the pipe from the toilet to the drain is plugged. It may be that the tub and sink have their own drain pipe that may connect to the main away from the toilet drain.

What if your toilet overflowed and then there is water in the bathtub confused?

Why do autistic children have toileting issues?

Essentially children will know when they need to use the toilet, they will know how to physically get up and walk to the toilet, they will know how to use the toilet, and they will know the consequences of not going to the toilet when they need to - however they are missing the part that turns thought of 'I need the toilet' into action of getting up to go to the toilet. With Autism the autistic person is very much in their own mind and there is a disconnect between their world in their mind and how they interact with the physical world around them - it's difficult to find a way of bridging that gap.
