Some good starter ideas Oct 23, 2007
Our family has a child with both sensory integration and developemental delay challenges. This book provided some ideas on how to proceed with the toilet training process, which is especially difficult for children who have less awareness of their need to go to the bathroom.
Gives You the Scoop on Pee and Poop Jun 9, 2007
I have a six-year-old with Autism who is yet to be potty trained. I was beside myself until I purchased this manual. Now, I understand more about his point of view when it comes to learning this new task. I was perplexed by his ability to control his bladder and bowel, but his unwillingness to use the toilet. It never occurred to me that using the bathroom could cause anxiety or that I needed to provide a calm and relaxing atmosphere for him while he was on the toilet.
What I like most about this book is that it gives you not only an overview but solutions and ideas for making a very important milestone in your child's life possible. Any parent of a child with learning disabilities wants their child to be able to assimilate into society as much as possible. This book helps to knock down one more wall standing in the way of social acceptance.
toilet training for the autistic Jan 5, 2007
I had been struggling with toilet training my autistic child. This book gave me a better understanding of what autistic children experience when toilet training them. It gave me different techniques and helpful hints to toilet training my child. It was so helpful that I purchased a copy for his teacher.
A difficult task made easier! Jun 30, 2006
I am so thankful that I chose this book over others that deal with toilet training. I did not realize how teaching someone on the spectrum how to use the potty is very different in many ways, than someone who's not. This book deals with those issues. It brings to light some very important routines and activities to follow. Especially for someone who is new to the world of Autism, this is a book that I highly recommend that you include in your library.
great ideas! Jun 26, 2006
If you ever thought that toilet training was no big deal, try training a child with special needs...a whole different story. This book gives some great tips on how to go about it when the odds are against you. Determining readiness, common problems and solutions and developing a routine, are just some of the topics covered in this book. It is a must have for special ed. teachers as well as parents of individuals with autism and related disorders. Great book!
