The Potty Journey: Guide to Toilet Training Children with Special Needs, Including Autism and Related Disorders (Paperback) By Judith A. Coucouvanis
Toilet training children with autism and related disorders is fraught with countless challenges stemming from the very core of their unique characteristics. The communication and sensory issues alone can create formidable barriers. As a result, typical strategies are frequently ineffective when used with children with special needs.
Using a no-nonsense, often humourous approach, Judith Coucouvanis, MA, APRN, BC, shares strategies that have produced remarkable results for parents of children with autism and related disorders nationwide.
Promising no 'quick fixes', "The Potty Journey" systematically guides you through the entire toileting journey, step-by-step, to the ultimate destination - dry pants.
By reading "The Potty Journey", you will learn about: how to tell if the child is 'ready'; easy and time-saving data collection methods; the importance of routines and how to develop effective routines; the impact of a consistent schedule; using rewards effectively; the hidden curriculum of public restrooms; the significance of dry pants; and, last, but not least, the importance of being patient and keeping a sense of humour.
