I often hear about how frustrating the potty training process is for parents, especially parents of autistic or hyperlexic children. Just go into any online support group and it won't take you long to find a discussion about this particular topic.

One thing that is helpful when potty training autistic or hyperlexic children is using a visual support of some kind, such as a visual schedule or routine chart. There are many benefits to using visual schedules and they can be tailor made to any situation or skill you are trying to teach. So why not potty training?

These free printable potty training visual schedules for kids are hopefully going to be a lifesaver for you and your child. They will hopefully help break down all the steps involved and remind your child what comes next in the process.

Free Printable Visual Schedules for Toilet Training

I highly recommend laminating any visual schedule for toilet training because kids may touch the schedule with wet hands or even...(shudders at the thought) dirty hands. It's bound to happen so save yourself from printing a new one by laminating it ahead of time. I also recommend hanging the visual schedule up where kids can easily see it while they are sitting on the toilet.

  1. Dyan,

    It took my SIX years to potty train my daughter! We found out later that she has Dyspraxia along with her Aspergers. Dyspraxia is the under development of nerve endings resulting in co-ordination and other sensory issues. One of which is the difficulty of toileting. It was very frustrating for me because at the age of 1 I could had my daughter a tissue and she would blow her own nose and was dry all day and through the night. The books all say to start potty training right? Wrong! She is 22 now and I still have to remind her to use the bathroom because she simple doesn't always recognize the need to go.
    We tried sticker charts, having friends that were her age show her what to do, treats, everything I could think of and that friends suggested. Nothing worked except time. Eventually she got it but as I stated still needs reminded.


    1. Yeah timing plays a huge part! I remember when we first tried potty training J it did not go well. It was simply because he was not ready. Waited another year and then it just clicked for him. Thanks for sharing your experience!
