If your child is refusing to participate in toilet training:
For additional help, see Part 25: Troubleshooting Toilet Training.
Some physiological conditions can cause a child to experience either frequent wetting and leaks or the inability to urinate as needed. Your child’s pediatrician is a good place to start if you have questions about frequent or infrequent urination.
Constipation is another condition that may interfere with toilet training. Consult with your child’s doctor or nurse if you are concerned that your child has constipation. Autism Speaks offers a good resource with information on helping to manage constipation in children.
Some medications can cause elimination problems. Consult with your child’s pediatrician and/or pharmacist for information regarding side effects of the medications your child is taking that may affect toilet training.
