Toilet Habits: Suggestions for Training a Child Who Is Blind.
Moor, Pauline M.
Intended for parents, the pamphlet provides suggestions for toilet training a blind child. Among the 12 tips presented are to establish a regular and convenient toileting schedule, provide a comfortable toilet arrangement, and give the child something to play with. Common problems in toilet training blind children are reported as fear of sitting on the toilet seat, refusal of boys to urinate as they grow older, extreme constipation, and night training. It is stressed that parents should use simple training procedures, and if they are not successful at first, should wait and try again at a later date. (SB)
