Toilet training for children with deafblindness and multi-sensory impairments


Expand view

Children with deafblindness have varying degrees of hearing and vision impairments which can impact their participation in activities of daily living. Deafblind children with multi-sensory impairments often have additional difficulties with participation in activities of daily living. Toilet training is important for children to develop their independence and dignity, as well as to develop and maintain good hygiene skills. This booklet provides useful information for family members, special educators, care workers and professionals to understand and support children with deafblindness in toilet training
