About this item

This book offers a comprehensive overview of the universal issue of toilet training in children and explores issues that need to be considered by clinicians and other professionals. The book begins with a historical overview of the field, including origins and reviews of current practices. It discusses various toileting problems and their side effects, risk factors, normal developmental milestones in toileting, and theories of toileting. Chapters identify behavior problems (e.g., self-injury, noncompliance) as well as medical conditions (e.g., diabetes, constipation) that can affect continence, with proven strategies for addressing these challenges in toilet training children, including those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The book concludes with a discussion of the strengths of current toilet training practices as well as suggestions for areas where continued improvement is required.
