Toilet Training



Potty training can be very difficult.  If a child is unable to balance or if their body is “too tight” and they are unable to sit on a toilet, alternatives will need to be established.  Bars may need to be placed on the toilet.  The sensation telling the child if he/she has to use the restroom may very well not be as pronounced for a child with cp and in many cases potty training will take longer when a child has a disability.  Michael was potty trained at the age of four, but it was a struggle.
