How Do I Toilet Train My Autistic Child

Toilet training your autistic child can be very frustrating and can make you feel almost desperate at times.

There are many factors you need to consider when deciding on the right time to start toilet training with your autistic/ asperger child.

Concentrate on one behavior at a time; you will find it very difficult to attempt to alter two sets of behavior issue at a time.

Ideally, everyone working with your child should begin the toilet training at the same time.And will follow an agreed approach.

The first sign that a child might be ready to start toilet training is when they start to become aware of needing to go to the toilet.

You may notice some changes in their behavior patterns, appearing distracted or fidgeting when they are wet or have soiled themselves. Or maybe they have started to tell you when they need changing.

Once you have made the decision that it is the right time to begin toilet training or potty training your autistic child, you will need to begin getting all the necessary equipment and aids in place.

A lot of parents use social stories as an aid to toilet training; these short descriptive pieces of text will act as a pictorial guide for your child.

Autism social stories can be used for many situations-giving your child clear clues as to what is expected of them when potty training, or indeed in any situation. After careful observation of your child you can determine which situations they are finding difficult.

These would be good areas to introduce social stories.
