Ideas for Potty Training Your Child with Autism

Posted: Monday, June 14, 2010 - 12:40


Laura Shumaker interviewed a number of parents of children with autism to see how they went about potty training their children. Some suggestions included: setting a timer and when it went off, showing the child a picture of the bathroom. One mother took her child to the potty every 15 minutes, and increased the time as the weeks went by; she did all changing and took care of all accidents in the bathroom so her child knew which room to use.

Another mom enlisted the help of a therapy coordinator for a potty party, "We sat in the bathroom all day and pumped him full of fluids. We had books and toys in the bathroom. When he went potty he got to do his most favorite thing for 5 minutes and then went straight to the bathroom where the drinks continued. We did break for lunch. We did it from 8am to 5pm. We went straight to underwear and diapers at night. My son was completely potty trained in 2 weeks."
