14 Feb AUTISM POTTY TRAINING TIPS FOR AUTISTIC TODDLERS + AUTISTIC KIDS
In this video from Our LANDing Crew, Stephanie gives parents of autistic toddlers and children tips for potty training. She draws on her experience with her son Noah, who is day-time potty trained only at this point (they are working on night-time potty training).
One major tip Stephanie gives is to limit fluid intake 2 hours before bedtime. Visual aids and simple communication are very helpful for parents to teach proper toilet usage, and positive reinforcement is very important when a child successfully uses the bathroom. Additionally, patience is incredibly important for parents whose children struggle with using the bathroom, as it takes a lot of time and practice for some kids to be fully potty trained.
