Toilet Training Workshop

56345584 447741c

SATURDAY ~ NOVEMBER 10 • 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM

 Brunswick Branch Medina County Library
Hickory Room, 3649 Center Road, Brunswick OH 44212

Workshop is FREE

Toilet training a child with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can often be more complicated than training a typically developing child.  Each of the three main components of autism – social impairments, communication deficits, and restricted interests/repetitive behaviors – can interfere with the process.  This workshop will cover the methodologies of toilet training children on the autism spectrum. 

Parents and Caregivers will learn the following strategies:

  • Recognizing toileting readiness and prerequisite skills
  • Preparing needed materials
  • Conducting the various types of toilet training methods
  • Collecting and interpreting data
  • Reinforcement, and troubleshooting

The workshop will include a power point presentation, accompanied by various handouts and take home items. It will also include time for group discussion and networking with other participants.
