Synopsis:

Easy-to-read bulleted lists offer more than 200 do’s and don’ts, supported by over 50 real-life case examples!
 
Toilet training can become a battleground for caregivers and children alike, especially if the child has autism or other developmental challenges. In this book, Maria Wheeler offers a detailed roadmap for success. She stresses the importance of visual cues, such as picture schedules representing the steps of the toileting routine. Other crucial elements are repetition, rewards, and teamwork with teachers if the child is in school. You will find many original and commonsense solutions for transitioning children from diapers to underpants, stopping “repeat flushing,” monitoring fluid intake, coping with a noisy bathroom, using Social Stories, and much more. Wheeler’s methods help keep the process as positive as possible for all involved, so children don’t feel upset or ashamed about going to the bathroom.
 
You will learn how to:
  • Gauge readiness
  • Identify and reduce sensory challenges
  • Help the child overcome fears and anxieties
  • Develop a “habit training” routine
  • Teach proper use of the toilet, toilet paper, sink, etc.
  • Facilitate the transition from diapers to underwear
  • Deal with toileting in unfamiliar environments
  • And more!
 

Synopsis:

Individuals with autism are reportedly one of the most difficult populations to toilet train. This book offers effective strategies that take the childs sensibilities into account instead of trying to force traditional methods. Tips, case examples, and cautions help make the process more of a lesson and less of a battle for all involved.
