Toileting is a tricky skill to learn! A child has to have sufficient fine and gross motor skills (to stabalise themselves and to get the toilet paper), as well as understanding, communication, body awareness, timing and the list goes on!!
Some kids take longer to learn toileting, or seem to have difficulty learning these skills "naturally." These children may need to be taught these skills. For parents - talk to your Occupational Therapist as well, as they can help!!
Information on Toileting is listed below.
