This is a comprehensive and extremely useful book about the toileting difficulties associated with Autism Spectrum Disorders. From developing basic toilet training and independence skills to discussing more complex issues like sensory differences, constipation, smearing and avoidant behaviour the book clearly demonstrates the importance of understanding how autism impacts on these difficulties. It offers practical, tried and tested suggestions and includes useful resources and links. This is going to be an invaluable book that has successfully drawn together, for the first time, everything you need to know about this subject.
Carol Povey, Director of the Centre for Autism
A fabulous book packed full of useful information, practical strategies, hints and tips.
June Rogers MBE, PromoCon Paediatric Continence Specialist
I was delighted to be asked to review this excellent book which gives a common sense and practical approach to toilet training children with ASD. By debunking the myth that toilet training should be delayed until the child 'is ready' it ensures that all children with ASD are given the same opportunities as their peers. I would suggest that this book should be essential reading for all those involved with the care of such children.

It is thorough and full of practical, tried and tested ideas. The use of parent views makes this an excellent resource.
