A Rapid Method of Toilet Training Individuals with ASD
For families with children/adults diagnosed with ASD or other related behavioral disorders. This workshop is designed for caregivers who have children who have not successfully responded to traditional toileting methods. Toilet training is one of the most important life skills that lead to a more independent life. Therefore, this workshop will describe the importance of toilet training, barriers to toilet training individuals with special needs, and present a rapid method of toilet training (i.e., 4 – 7 days) based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). As a result of this workshop, caregivers should feel confident in their skills to implement this method of toilet training.

Research has shown the use of visual systems enhance the likelihood of developing improvements in oral speech. Visual supports for children with autism are not meant to reduce communication and speech, but rather enhance communication and provide structure and organization into their daily routines. This seminar is designed for families who have children with ASD or related disorders and are interested in various methods of visual supports. We will be going over visual schedules, token boards, visuals for following directions, and much more. By the end of the seminar, families should feel confident in their ability to make various visual supports and implement these in the home and community
