Steps to Becoming Independent: Toilet Training Challenges Facing Children with ASD

Abstract

Learning toileting routines often occurs later for students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Many factors affect the delay that a family may experience in trying to toilet train a child with ASD, so having teamwork between home and school is vital for success at mastering the routines associated with independent toileting. Consistency, communication, and routine are the hallmarks of success. There must also be some consideration for the unique sexual, emotional, and sensory needs of a child with autism who is trying to learn any new task.
