Toileting Difficulties associated with Neurodevelopmental Conditions

Many children with neurodevelopmental conditions (NDCs) may present with toileting difficulties for a variety of reasons, so it is important to find out what might be behind some of these difficulties. This course has been developed with continence specialists and occupational therapists who are advanced practitioners in sensory integration, and aims to give delegates an understanding of what lies behind toileting difficulties in children and young people with NDCs. 

Learning new skills and strategies to manage difficulties with toileting can be vital for parents and carers and for the professionals who support them.

Training can be delivered as full-day, half-day or twilight sessions with learning outcomes tailored appropriately.

OFSTED and CQC guidance advises professionals and carers to work in a person-centred way and to be creative in order to minimise behaviour that presents as challenging.

Who is the training for?

This training is designed to support professionals working with children/young people and their families presenting with toileting difficulties associated with SPD and neurodevelopmental conditions.

By the end of the training, participants will:

  • Have gained an understanding of toileting difficulties associated with SPD and neurodevelopmental conditions
  • Have a greater understanding of the challenges that they can present if unmanaged and unsupported
  • Recognise the impact on the day-to-day lives of families living with a child or young person with toileting difficulties associated with SPD and neurodevelopmental conditions
  • Be able to promote a better relationship with toileting through improved understanding
