Toilet training a child is sometimes difficult to do even in the best situations. But add on top of that challenges such as autism, and parents can be overwhelmed by the task. Obviously, becoming independent with bathroom habits is critical as the child becomes older. With all the skills and resources parents have at their disposal, the most important for toilet training is patience.
