Ready, Set, Potty! *review*

 Ready, Set, Potty!

Toilet Training for Children with Autism and Other Developmental Disorders

Brenda Batts

Potty training a child with developmental disorders can be a real challenge, and sometimes the extra difficulties make you feel as though you've tried everything, and failed. In this book, Brenda Batts shows how you can overcome problems, big and small, and provides tried and tested methods that really work, tailored to each individual child.

Bursting with ideas on how to see past conventional strategies and adapt toilet training to suit your child, this book outlines methods that have helped even the most despairing of parents and caregivers. Examples of success stories range from two-year-olds to adults aged 20, and show that no matter how difficult it may seem, a little creativity and adaptation can get anyone toilet trained, however many previous attempts have failed. The program itself is supported by plenty of helpful hints and tips, as Brenda covers all you need to get your child past the diaper stage and help them to achieve a big step towards independence.

This book is a must for anybody looking to toilet train someone with developmental disorders.

This is a book I REALLY wish I had had around when I was potty training my son Aiden. Ready, Set, Potty! is filled with fabulous ideas and I am actually going to use some with my daughter Olivia. She is developmentally "normal" but utterly opposed to the idea of using the potty so I am sure the ideas in this book will help.

If you are the parent of a special needs kid be sure to get this book- I am CERTAIN it will be a great help in your quest to toilet train that child!!! It is very easy to read and 100% practical. The ideas are doable for every family. I am happy to recommend Ready, Set, Potty!.

Thanks so much to Jessica Kingsley Publishers for sending me a review copy of this book.
