This year, is Clear Steps Consultancy's, second year of organising the amazing Toileting Support Summer Camp. This article shares more & why attend!
As a Continence Sleep and Behaviour Consultant for over twenty five years, Charmaine has supported hundreds if not thousands of children with and without additional or complex needs, their families, schools and professionals at every step of the toileting journey.
One in twelve children experience bladder (wee) and bowel (poo) difficulties and the likelihood of this increases when a child has a diagnosis.
Toileting is a life skill, which we all strive for our children to achieve.
Families, nurseries and schools often raise concerns around:
Traditional approaches, and media reports focus on a child's "age" and the "act" of toileting, focusing upon toileting readiness with the equipment needed, the potty, the seat, and the child's age etc
Although, the equipment and what is needed "is" important. What is not considered with an "age" focus are the "internal" needs of our children, the wee and poo signals, recognising and responding to signals.
Families, nurseries and schools report ongoing wee and poo difficulties in the day and night with increasing confusion about how and where to start in helping individual children in being successful with their toileting.
Many families feel "isolated" and "unsure" of where or who to turn to for help and are also unsure "what" help and support is available or even "what" to ask for.
What does this mean for the individual children?
Toileting can be delayed or even not started. Children continue to experience wee or poo difficulties, with children often being mis
understood in the long run.
How Clear Steps Consultancy is making changes?
Charmaine wanted to help through sharing, twenty five years knowledge, experience and information with families, schools and professionals.
Sharing a "new" way of thinking about toileting. Thinking less about "age" and more about "timing" and "what" to do!
Charmaine, realised that reviewing perspectives on Toileting and focusing on the "right time" for our individual children, with "support" can really help children progress and be successful with toileting.
Toileting is achievable for children with and without an additional need!
Support available at Clear Steps Consultancy is available to help at every stage of a child's toileting journey.
What is the Toileting Support Summer Camp?
