Who Can ABA Potty Training Help?
Many children with ASD and other challenges learn to use the toilet at a later age than other children. Possible reasons include:
- Sensory Overload

- Body Cues & Body Awareness Issue
- Need for Sameness
- Restricted And Repetitive Behaviors
- Gastrointestinal Problems & Constipation
Whatever the reason, the team at Handprint Therapies is here to help your child overcome this challenge and feel more comfortable using the bathroom.
Handprint Therapies’ Toilet Training ABA Program
At Handprint Therapies, every potty training plan/session is uniquely tailored to each kid. Instead of just using a bunch of general strategies, we begin our ABA potty training by first completing a full analysis to understand each unique issue your child is facing. We will first rule out any medical issues then start gathering data and analyzing the skill deficits, function of behaviors, and motivation of your child to figure out what all of the barriers are to their potty training.
Customized ABA Potty Training Therapy
Using our BCBA’s initial assessment, we will use this data to fine-tune your child’s ABA toilet training program. The data will indicate when accidents or wet and dirty diapers are more likely to occur during certain times such as after liquids and meals and/or during certain times of the day. We can then develop a toileting schedule around the times that the child is most likely to void/bm and help them establish a routine and learn the necessary skills.
In conjunction with their full-day or half-day sessions, your child’s toilet training ABA program can help them develop all the necessary skills to effectively use the potty including
- Functional Communication & Language Skills
- Following Instructions
- Gross Motor Skills
