Talking about: toileting with additional needs – parent / carer event

25th June 2024 • 19.00 - 20.30 • via Zoom

Join us for a webinar led by our Family Services Team in which we will be discussing how we can prepare and support children with additional needs with their toilet training.

We will focus on the challenges they may meet and how we can support them in feeling comfortable using the toilet at a pace that reflects their needs.

Our Helpline Advisors will explain how to understand your child’s bowels, good bladder health, how to know when they are ready to toilet train and set them up for success.

We willl explore the sensory aspect of toileting and the difference the bathroom environment can make.

The session includes information around toileting routines, dealing with toilet avoidance and frustration. We will share the resources and tools available to support you on this journey.

PLEASE NOTE: these free events are for parents and carers. If you are a health, education or early years worker interested in events to support you in your professional capacity please see our programme of training courses here.
