10. THEY CAN BE HELPFUL FOR KIDS WITH AUTISM

Children with autism can sometimes struggle to get used to potty training. The consistency of a routine is comforting to children with autism, and that routine is disrupted during the transition from diapers to the toilet. The Squatty Potty can help make the bathroom time shorter and more comfortable.

Autistic children may also have difficulty verbally expressing that they need to go. Having an object that they associate with going to the bathroom can help them communicate this need. The Toilet Timer can be used as a transition object which the child can grab from a visible location to signal that it’s time to go. They can also bring it to the bathroom with them to tell them when they should get off the toilet. It helps to create a consistent routine[3].
