This short course covers strategies that you can use to support parents to promote toilet learning and introduce toilet use. The TOILET framework is about preparing to introduce toilet use. The FOUNDATIONS framework is our learning framework applied here to promoting learning and skills development that will support independent toilet use. This is ideal for parents starting to think about toilet use. It can be used for parents who are having difficulties too. The troubleshooting framework, CRUCIAL used for meeting and balancing needs is often the go to framework when parents are encountering difficulties, and here we apply it specifically to toilet learning. Finally we have supporting dry NIGHTS which is a series of tips for parents starting to think about removing nappies at night time.

Prerequisites: An introduction to psychological development core short course bundle. When looking at the impact of interventions commonly used in toilet learning we draw on an understanding of psychological development, motivation, and behaviourism as introduced in the introduction to psychological development bundle.
