Many children with autism are difficult to toilet train. Parents and teachers have tried many approaches to teaching the children to use the toilet independently. Not all children respond to the same teaching techniques.
The books, timers, visual support, deflectors, seat reducers and toileting seats listed here will help you in establishing a consistent and positive routine along with an environment that is secure and not over-stimulating. It is recommended to build in many elements of visual structure to help the child understand exactly what is expected. A method that is helpful in one child's situation may not be useful in another case.
