Who Are We?
At Saskatchewan Behaviour Consulting we work with children who have a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Down Syndrome, or other Developmental Disabilities and their family and community to develop independence with using the toilet. With proper education, therapy and support from me and their caregivers, children can develop functional bathroom routines which will help them become more independent and start initiating when they need to use the toilet. We specialize in working with families with children ages 18 months to 19 years who know that teaching their child to use the toilet independently will drastically improve their quality of life.

Why a Behavioural Approach for Toilet Training?
As Behaviour Analysts, we view eliminating in the toilet as a skill set. Often, the clients that we work with have either had a negative experience with using the toilet, refuse to interrupt their current bathroom routines, or never learnt the skills they need to successfully eliminate on the toilet independently. We address all these issues in a systematic manner in which we set criteria to ensure each step is mastered before moving on to the next phase of toilet training.
