36- Hour Intensive Potty Training Program
Our Potty Training program helps teach one of the most important daily living skills to children, even those individuals with various diagnoses and skill levels. Our all-inclusive potty training method has a 100% success rate because it is not a "cookie cutter" intervention. Each potty training is completely individualized for the child. Our potty training specialists use principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to help your child learn the necessary skills to successfully become potty trained.
All about our potty training program:
First, we schedule a phone conference with parents to discuss child readiness and identify child specific needs. Second, our potty training specialists will prepare your child’s individualized potty training plan, according to his or her needs. Third, we will sit down with parents to review the individualized plan, train them how to follow it, discuss any questions or concerns. At this time we will also schedule the intensive potty training. Fourth, Our potty training specialists will come to your home for 3 days (6 hours/day) so that your child is able to learn and practice in his or her natural environment. During our visits, our potty training specialists will work with the child and consistently coach parents through the potty training process, providing guidance and assistance with problem solving. Fifth, following the first 3 days of the potty training process, our potty training specialists will continue to provide ongoing support (phone calls, text messages), as needed.
