Some children have difficulty understanding the toileting routine. This set of 20 laminated picture cards can help children to understand the process of using the toilet, especially useful for those with autism or communication difficulties.
Includes an 18-page guide to toileting children written by Dr Eve Fleming MB CHB BA MRCPCH.
What we say….
This is a really useful resource for parents, carers and practitioners supporting children with toileting. The set comprises 10 cards showing a girl and 10 cards showing a boy in the process of using the toilet. The cards are durable and the graphics are clear so that a child can clearly see the action being depicted. They are blank on the back so that velcro may be attached for use on teaching boards or a visual toilet training timetable.
