Toileting

** This is an updated and expanded version of the article that was posted previously **

Toilet training is definitely an issue for many parents. Often, our children do not display the typical readiness signs. Also, they may have sensory issues (i.e. toilet flushing is too loud), anxiety, an inability to communicate effectively, and/or experience gastrointestinal discomfort (i.e. diarrhea, constipation). But, it is possible to teach our children how to use the toilet – even non verbal children. Don’t be alarmed if it seems like it’s taking forever. Everyone operates on a different schedule. Patience and consistency will win in the end.
