Towards Toileting Independence • Workshop

Tuesday 5 September @ 7:30 pm 9:30 pm AEST

Get ready to tackle toilet training

Developing independence with using the toilet is a milestone for children, which involves a range of motor, language and thinking skills. This workshop is an introduction to toilet training and an initial problem-solving session for families who are preparing to begin toilet training.

Please note: If you are a family with a school-aged child who, after many attempts, is still not toilet trained, you may require more intensive support or the services of an incontinence nurse. It is not likely this workshop will be of assistance as it is an introductory workshop.

  • Skills needed for toilet training
