Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

OTs often struggle to target toilet training in interventions, as there is currently no verifiable means to measure progress of the tasks associated with mastering the activities of daily living of toileting and toilet hygiene. This makes the pragmatics of reimbursement and goal writing difficult for many therapists. The purpose of this study is to validate an instrument that measures the developmental progression of toilet-training skills among children with autism spectrum disorder ages two to six years old.
