Maria Wheeler offers a detailed roadmap for success. She stresses the importance of visual cues, such as picture schedules representing the steps of the toileting routine. Other crucial elements are repetition, rewards, and teamwork with teachers if the child is in school. You will find many original and commonsense solutions for transitioning children from diapers to underpants, stopping “repeat flushing,” monitoring fluid intake, coping with a noisy bathroom, using Social Stories, and much more. Wheeler’s methods help keep the process as positive as possible for all involved, so children don’t feel upset or ashamed about going to the bathroom.
