Autism society will discuss toilet training Tuesday
The Rowan County Chapter of the Autism Society of North Carolina will host a session called Toileting Success for families and support people dealing with autism at its February meeting.
The meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in Room 123 of First Ministry Center, 220 N. Fulton St. This is a new location for the monthly meeting.
The meeting is free and open to the public.
First Ministry Center is across the street from First Baptist Church. Visitors should park in the main parking lot, enter through the main doors, and turn right.
Casey Wilson from TEACCH will speak and answer questions at the meeting.
“Toilet training can be a complex issue for a child with autism,” said Alice Lawson, president of the Rowan County Chapter. “Many factors linked with autism can make this task especially difficult, including motivational, communication, sensory, medical, and control issues.
“We hope families and support persons will join us as TEACCH helps us explore this issue and connects us with resources to help our children master this daily task and move a step closer to independence.”
The Rowan County Chapter meets the third Tuesday of every month. The chapter was formed by local parents and care providers. It is supported by the Autism Society of North Carolina.
