“I’m at my wit’s end”. “We can’t seem to figure out how to begin training with our (special needs) child”. “My child can be potty trained? Really?” These are comments from parents that I’ve heard countless times. They have read the books, tried various methods and sought advice from professionals, but nothing has worked for their child. When all else fails, parents ask for my help. In other cases, parents don’t even know where to begin training their child.
Potty training can be a stressful time for everyone involved in the process. Potty training a child with an Autism Spectrum Disorder or other special need can be even more challenging. Ashley Hickey, Potty Training Specialist and owner of Successful Potty Training, LLC, is an expert in potty training. Over the past 18 years, she has potty trained hundreds of children of all abilities, throughout the United States and in the United Kingdom. Your child can be trained!
(Most children can be potty trained in about a week . However, some children may take longer.)
