Helping children and adolescents learn the skills necessary to use the toilet independently
Teaching toileting skills to your child can be one of the most frustrating experiences for parents of children with autism and related neurodevelopmental disorders. A child’s inability to use the toilet independently can lead to limited community engagement, extensive support to manage themselves, poor opportunities for functional independence, and associated challenging behavior.
CCSN’s treatment model focuses on skill acquisition that allows for individuals to experience ongoing success and move toward independent functioning. Although toileting challenges are complex, they are treatable with intensive, evidence-based therapeutic supports.
