Toilet training is one of the major focuses during early childhood therapy, as it is a basic activity that all children should be able to independently perform at home or in other settings.
For verbal kids, we encourage them to talk about their bodily functions whenever they feel the urge to urinate or defecate.
For non-verbal kids, we teach them to use gestures associated with the word “pee” or “poop” whenever they need to go.
The goal is for all children to eventually be able to communicate their needs effectively and take care of themselves without assistance.
Toilet training can be a challenging process for both kids and parents, but it is an important milestone in a child’s development.
With patience and support, most children will be successfully toilet trained in no time!
The beginning is always the hardest stage, not only for kids, but for the parents and primary caregivers too.
We understand the struggle, which is why we are willing to assist the child and the parent for them to properly assist the kids in doing the toilet training.
Moreover, our therapists have various techniques that we can share to the parents and caregivers that they can use at home.
Starting early is essential for a child’s success in school and in developing independence, so please do not hesitate to ask for our support.
Let’s work together to help your child reach their full potential!
