Potty Training Autistic Children and other Special Needs

When it comes to potty training an Autistic or other special needs child, there are going to be some challenges. It may require the parent(s) to come up with creative ideas to grab the attention of the child. But the one thing that is the same with all children potty training is Consistency.

Make a schedule and stick to it even if it means putting off house cleaning or errands for a few days. Dedicate time to focus on the child, find things the child enjoys doing and include them in potty training time. Be willing to stretch your boundaries to accommodate for potty training.

Understand there probably will be some potty accidents. Have your child help you clean it up and don't make a big deal out of it and praise your child for their efforts.

As the mom of an Autistic child days can be unpredictable. Keeping a schedule can help make things a little easier while being flexible. If you child loves snacks allow your child to have one while sitting on the potty. If they enjoy watching certain tv shows or movies let them watch one with the potty sitting in front of the tv. If they love video games then let them play them.

You want the child to get the feeling of using the potty. If it works better to go without underwear then do so. While the potty training process may take longer with a special needs child the tools are the same. Be consistent, always praise and utilize things they enjoy.

Also, talk with your child's pediatrician, therapists, even moms of Autistic children or those with special needs. They may have additional ideas to consider. To get started with the basics of potty training consider Pottytrainingsites potty training e-book to help you get started with potty training.

Potty Training

Did you remember to "Spring" your clocks forward last night? Would you love to "Spring" forward in potty training your child successfully?

Parents would love to potty train and be done with it in an instant. It would mean no more diapers, wipes, ointment and especially carrying around a diaper bag. There would be the freedom to spend more time outdoors this spring. Best of all it means your child can enjoy the swimming pool this summer!

No matter how old your child is, my method works in helping achieve success with potty training. Five years ago I was at wits end with my oldest son. He was nearing his fourth birthday and I had just applied for him to attend Pre-K in the fall. However, I was told he had to be potty trained to attend school.

I understand how frustrating potty training can get. I thought my child would never be potty trained and the pressure was building. My friends who created his method shared with me and have since passed on the torch so I can share it with other parents.

What would you like to know about potty training? How would you like to "Spring" into action and achieve successful potty training? For any questions you may have click here OR visit pottytrainingsite.com for more information.

Potty Training

Yesterday I ran across an article about a 3 year old boy who was killed over potty training. Apparently the little boy had an accident which infuriated the mother and her boyfriend. More stunning about the story is that the mom and her boyfriend beat this child for over an hour, left him to die, ate pizza and watched a movie. To read more about the story click on this link: http://www.wtvy.com/home/headlines/117418333.html

People assume they can straight out potty train a child. Arrogance, Ignorance and Intolerance can hinder the potty training process. Parents and childcare providers can become frustrated when they assume potty training is a process all children in their care will do the same way.

Children are different and they potty train at different ages. What will work for one child may not work for another. What does your child enjoy doing that can be integrated into the potty training process? A coloring book with some crayons, a sticker book, popsicles, favorite toy are some of the things to think about.

Potty training is a learning process that mom, dad, grandparents, babysitters, etc help teach the child to do. To learn more about potty training visit Pottytrainingsite.com

Potty Training Children With Autism

It's been quite some time since I've been posting on the pottytrainingsite blog. Mainly, it is due to spending a lot of time traveling and at The TEAM Centers, Inc. in nearby Chattanooga, TN. This center assists families, children and adults with behavioral and developmental disorders. They specialize in Autism, helping families in Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and Alabama.

Recently, my middle child whom I had the greatest challenge/struggles with potty training, was diagnosed as having PDD or Pervasive Development Disorder. PDD is on the Autism Spectrum.

I have always been one to emphasize to parents who are potty training or experiencing challenges that having a schedule is so important. For Autistic children this is imperative that a schedule be set whether or not you are potty training.

Allow your child to be a part of their daily schedule. Use pictures, stickers, markers or magnets to make it child "friendly." Having structure day to day will help make things smoother not only for your child but yourself as well as the rest of the family.

Potty training does not have to be a difficult challenge. Be creative and always include your child. Include activities that they enjoy doing. Utilizing things in your child's life that grabs their attention can help motivate them when it comes to potty training.

Children with Autism must be accepted for who they are. As a specialist reminded me, children with a disorder on the Autism spectrum cannot be changed. They are who they are and parents as well as teachers and others involved in their lives have be creative, working with the child to build a successful connection.

So many times others attempt to change a child with Autism. Majority of the time that backfires leading to frustration, anger, resentment, and even guilt. It does not have to be that way.

Potty training a child with special needs such as Autism can become a breakthrough and way to bond with that child.

Potty Training

Preparing for the upcoming holidays with a toddler can be a challenge, unless you are prepared. It's getting that time to do shopping for the Thanksgiving meal, Shopping on Black Friday and the days leading up to Christmas.

And not all the time will you have a babysitter, which leaves you stuck to take the children along. The one thing that would make life easier is to have your child potty trained in time for the holidays, right?

Getting your child potty trained means: No carrying around a bulky diaper bag, worrying about laying your child down on a diaper changing station that you have no idea if it has ever been sanitized or your child soiling their pants in the store and everyone nearby smelling it.

When you're shopping the last thing you want to be doing is carrying around a bulky diaper bag along with your purse and lots of shopping bags. You definitely do not want your child to be exposed to germs from viruses such as rotovirus, right? I rarely ever had to use the diaper changing station when I was out. For one, they were not as available as they are now. Sometimes though, looking at them alone would cause me to cringe and I refused to lay my child down on one of them. Yes, they are handy, but seriously, do you know when the last time it was sanitized? By the time you get your child secured on the table, unpack the diapers and wipes, clean your child up, put a new diaper on, get them redressed, throw the soiled diaper away, and figure out how to get your hands washed, it gets exhausting! Changing a diaper is not like when they are newborns when they will lay still. Once they master rolling over they become wiggle worms.

The most embarrassing thing to happen is to be in the middle of shopping when you realize your child is straining while having a bowel movement. Or worse yet, your child has one and how you find out along with everyone else around you is the smell. Chances are most stores are going to be packed with other shoppers.

Imagine what life would be like to have a child you can easily take to the restroom to use the potty, that most places now offer toilet seat covers.

You have the freedom to have more time to shop rather than stopping to check for a wet or soiled diaper.

The best part is that ALL the money you have spent for diapers can now be invested into Christmas gifts. Within a one year period, a family may spend upwards of $500 to $1000 a year on one child alone, just on diapers. Add to it baby wipes and the occasional use of diaper rash ointment you have spent enough to at least take you and another person on a 4 day cruise to the Bahamas!

For $27 I will explain to you the method of getting your child potty trained in one weekend. If you can spend three days focusing on getting your child potty trained, this method will be successful.

I do have to caution parents out there who have been through recent changes. A new baby, a new house, mom or dad returning to work, or any other significant changes require some settling in time, especially for children. When you believe your child is showing signs of readiness (I.E. interest in using the potty or wanting to remove soiled diapers) it is the time to prepare yourself for potty training.

So, would you rather continue to spend $10 or $20 a week in diapers and wipes or are you willing to make a one time investment of $27 in a e-book that will thoroughly teach you how to get your child successfully potty trained? Get the potty training tips you need to accomplish a milestone in your child's life in one place, in one book by people who understand and have personal as well as professional experience.

The best way to know if your child is ready to use the potty is to work on it. There is not a magical time or even a magical method that universally works for all children.
