Are you toilet training your child with autism? Then you'll definitely want to check out these fabulous free potty training social stories for kids.

Potty training was definitely a struggle for one of my sons and an absolute breeze for the other, so I believe that potty training is only successful when your child is truly ready for it. So if you and your child are ready to tackle the goal of being potty trained, these free potty training social stories are here to help it become a reality!

My oldest son required visual supports and reminders when he was potty training. We relied on visual schedules and social stories in order to help him master all the little steps from wiping to flushing to washing his hands when he was done. It was extremely helpful for him!

We also used the Potty Time video, signs, and songs to help reinforce the skills. I highly recommend all the Signing Time videos, by the way. They're fantastic.

Anyway, on to those free social stories about toilet training, right?
