PFA Event - Toilet Training Children and Adolescents with ASD: A Guide for Parents and Practitioners Part 2: Bowel Movement and Nighttime Toilet Training
Toilet training an individual diagnosed with ASD may be challenging, and often occurs at a later stage in life. This can be especially difficult when teaching bowel movement, wiping, and nighttime toileting skills. This training will focus on those skills to be targeted once your child has learned to remain dry during the day. Learning and generalizing these skills does not always occur automatically and may require explicit and systematic instruction. This training will define and breakdown those skills, to assist you in creating a practical plan that is tailored to the individual’s needs to successfully teach next steps for toilet training.
