Autism Live

Autism Live host Shannon Penrod is here to discuss what EO is and how it can be useful for parents! After that, she interacts with our live viewers about the question of the day and topic of the week before getting into a deep Parent to Parent discussion about Potty Training! Tune in and interact with our host Weekdays @10 am PT!

Is your child ready for toilet training?

Are they showing sensory signs they are ready?

Are you ready for toilet training?

Are you able to take the time to do this?

Are you rested enough?

Are you in the place where you are willing to do the difficult thing to get to better times?

Setting the Stage:

Create a place to take data

Make your bathroom fabulous

Get cool underwear

Get a timer/can use your phone

Catch up on laundry and sleep

2 weeks before

Start taking data – give your child a drink/try to notice when they void

Get a feel for what their number is.

Day/week before

Get salty preferred snacks and drinks Make sure your schedule is cleared.

Make party trips to visit the potty – no demands

Day 1

Make the world fun for your child and yourself

Feed salty snacks – give fluids – set timer equation is 1 minute less than the average # of minutes before they usually urinate.

When timer goes off – party to the bathroom

Put them on potty

Set timer for 5 minutes

If they go CELEBRATE!!!!! Then repeat

If they don’t do – take them off, help them redress reset the timer for 3 minutes – do something outside the bathroom that is fun.

When the time goes off – party to the bathroom

Put them on potty

Set timer for 5 minutes

If they go CELEBRATE!!!!! Then repeat

If they don’t do – take them off, help them redress reset the timer for 3 minutes – do something outside the bathroom that is fun.

If they have an accident – there is no reaction, no words, no looks – clean it up and start over.

Once they are getting it fairly often, SWITCH TOILETS!!!! Go places! Take the timer – do the same steps as home.

It is all about consistency!

The poop thing –

Different but the same – take the data first

Set a reward

Overcome sensory obstacles

REWARD Heavily

Nighttime – wait until they are ready Go over the rules and set the stage for success

Reward, Reward, Reward

Trouble shooting

Accidents

Sensory Issues

Past Trauma
