Toilet Training for autistic kids

How do you teach children with autism to use the toilet? For some children with autism, a simple visual story works well at teaching toileting. However, this does not work for everyone. Using the character of interest to the child, alongside the visual story can often make the difference.

Autism toilet training

As a speech and language therapist I’ve often come across this problem one system I found that works for some children is to use a character of interest to the child and put that alongside the visual story, if the child has the reading ability you can also add speech boxes here are a couple of examples here we used Buzz Lightyear and he talks the child through each stage of the toileting process

  1. @galea you need to know learn about ASD before you troll your ignorant, uninformed, hateful comments.

  2. @GAKRAC that shows what you know. not all childern with autism have problems with using the toliet some do though. it can be related to their sensoary problems. do your research please before you put your input in please its very important.

  3. are you serious? if they cant use the toilet its because they are retarded not because of their autism

  4. I’ve recently wrote about evaluating your child’s life and academic skills. This video is foundational about teaching Austic children about toilet training. When I watched this video, it reminded me that we have to educate these children with principle upon principle – one step at a time. If you have an Austic child, please leave your thoughts or ways you’ve taught your child this life skills.
