This book is one of the few that helped me see toilet training in a new light with some real possibilities for my child. There were strategies I had not read before and nice case studies helping put a human face on a problem I thought was mine alone as a mother. Most books only address toileting issues for young children, this approached them developmentally, not age alone. I would recomeend this to anyone having difficulty with this issue in their family.

...we all know that. This book approaches the MANY different unique issues that may come up in toilet training a child with autism. It does not imply (as most books on this topic do) that there is one sure way to success. The authors provide many suggestions to address each child's INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES (sensory or otherwise) in the training plan. Also, I liked the EMPHASIS ON TEAMWORK -- toilet training an autistic child must involve cooperative effort from teachers, therapists, respite care workers, parents and anyone else who spends time with your child.
