Why is this Potty Training Social Story Unique?
There are HEAPS OF Toilet Training Resources out there! So how is this resource different?
This Social Story is for children who are stool withholding, avoiding toileting or having difficulties progressing with toilet training. This Social Story is NOT a story for showing children how to use the potty or toilet. In fact, the toilet is not even mentioned in this story at all!! For children with bowel and bladder difficulties, using the toilet is a LONG TERM goal. This story helps children to feel content with pushing out their poos to start to break the cycle of stool withholding, chronic constipation and toilet avoidance.
2. TOILET ROUTINE ANCHOR CHART: Children who hold in their poos often need support re-learning the correct positioning and technique for pushing out a poo correctly and painlessly. This Summary Poster is the ideal visual support to keep near the toilet to support your child in a visual way.
3. RAINBOW THEMED REWARD CHARTS:
To break the cycle of chronic constipation caused by stool withholding, many children respond to using a reward chart. This RAINBOW THEMED Reward Chart is uniquely designed to motivate and engage your child with the following features:
· Spaces to write the GOAL and REWARD, so that your child knows WHAT they are working for and what their reward will be.
· A choice of 3, 5 or 10 spaces for children to reach their reward.
· A logical, left to right design, making it easy for your child to track their progress
· A fun, happy Rainbow Theme
RESOURCE NOTE: The language used in this resource is aimed at an American/UK audience and as a result, the word ‘poop’ is used to describe a bowel motion.

“My first year in a Life Skills classroom. I have learned so much. I wasn’t sure how to approach this life skills. The book was easy to put together. I also bought the book that was suggested and my students love it.”
