Analysing toileting development and program design

A new publication for free download was added to in August, 2012.  It is an early paper written during the large toilet training research program which led to a range of toilet training procedures and programs, and to the three books available for sale on this web site. It outlines the basics of how a behavioural analysis of self-toileting can be done.  The first study of the research program made it clear that such a behavioural analysis was needed before an effective training program could be designed and trialled.

The paper also briefly describes how this kind of analysis can guide the design of training procedures needed by the particular child being considered for toilet training. By this early stage in the research and clinical trials it was clear that many children had different aspects of toileting which they were finding difficult to learn.  This meant that a range of procedures and programs were needed rather than one toilet training program for everyone.
