|Programme Description||:|| Proper toileting is a skill which is needed by all of us. We start to learn these skills as an infant and generally master them as a toddler. For individuals with an Autism Spectrum Disorder or autism, they require additional training and support to help them master this life-long skill.|
Attendance at this workshop will empower participants with the knowledge and skills to support their child/student in acquiring essential toileting skills.Participants will be instructed in the tools and strategies for developing an appropriate-level toilet training programme for their child/student with autism.
Participants in this training workshop will be exposed to case examples which will focus on key issues in supporting a child/student with autism in the area of toileting. Participants will also be exposed to tools and strategies that can be applied to effectively support their child/student to acquire toileting skills.
|Learning Goals||:||Upon completion of the training workshop, participants will be able to:|
identify and understand the main triggers for problems in toileting for individuals with autism, namely:
problems with body awareness
lack of specific toileting skills
fear of new situations or changes to established routines in toileting
