Individuals with autism are reportedly one of the most difficult
populations to toilet train. This second edition offers effective
strategies that take the child's physical and emotional sensitivities
into account instead of trying to force traditional methods.
Easy-to-read bulleted lists offer more than 200 do's and don'ts, along
with over 50 real-life examples, to help make the process more of a
lesson and less of a battle for all involved. The young trainee will
learn to overcome fear of the bathroom, properly use toilet paper, flush
once, wash hands, and more. The toilet trainer will learn how to
overcome challenges caused by communication needs, sensory
sensitivities, motor challenges, anxiety levels, etc.
