Potty Training, Visual Charts, Tips

Breaking down the task into a series of small steps.

Training your child to go to the toilet is a big task.

It is made up of many small steps. By breaking down these steps into smaller parts, you can teach these parts to children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Step by step.

As your child begins to learn each step on how to use the toilet, you can give them rewards, which will boost their learning.

Children with ASD usually learn visually.

To help your child to learn:

  • Signal visual cues and prompting.
  • Set reminders for taking potty breaks.

Visuals can help support the daily task of using the toilet.

The Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) are visual aids that can help.

Creating a visual chart to show how to use the toilet will help your child. The chart can be posted on a wall that is near the toilet.
