- PFA Event - Toilet Training Children and Adolescents with ASD: A Guide for Parents and Practitioners Part 2: Bowel Movement and Nighttime Toilet Training
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.

- Parent Coaching
Being a parent is among the most difficult jobs in the universe. We are called to teach, model, love, support, comfort, advise, and give discipline. Sometimes these roles conflict with each other and we are pulled in opposing directions. Add in our fast-paced environment and the impact of social media and this job can be monumentally difficult. Parent coaching provides guidance to parents and helps families consider what is going well and what challenges need to be addressed. All kids want to be successful, and parent coaching can give parents the tools to teach kids the skills and resilience they need.
Parenting a child with autism, anxiety, ADHD, and other neurological challenges adds another layer of complexity. Despite the best advice from friends, family, and others, sometimes additional tools and strategies are needed.
Lighthouse is pleased to offer parent coaching one Saturday a month. These 45-minute sessions can stand alone as one-time supports or can be on-going coaching sessions. Prior to the first session, our Social Learning Coordinator, Jolene Farmer, sends a skills inventory for parents to complete. Together with Jolene, parents will prioritize goals and decide on an action plan designed especially for their family.
Our next available session is October 20th. There is one remaining slot available on this day at 1:15pm. The next upcoming dates for coaching sessions is 11/17 from 10am to 2pm.
Please contact Jolene Farmer to schedule
