Toileting

Toilet training can be a difficult task whether your child has autism or not, but the process for children with ASD may take a little longer and need different approaches.

There are many good sources of information for toilet training such as the National Autistic Society (NAS) or Education and Resources for Improving Childhood Continence (ERIC) (contact details listed below). We have listed some top tips relating to toilet training for you to consider.

Some children with ASD may be prone to constipation or loose poos. They may experience both, at different times, or at the same time (if the bowel is blocked, then only liquid matter can pass the blockage). If difficulties persist, or you are concerned in any way, contact your GP, health visitor or school nurse to provide advice and, where necessary, to consider possible medical reasons for their difficulties.
