Description: While many children achieve successful toileting without intervention, others need additional support. Dr. Nathan H. Azrin and Dr. Richard M. Foxx published a variety of studies on toilet training typically developing children as well as children and adults with developmental delays. During this workshop, Azrin and Foxx’s Rapid Toilet Training method will be discussed and demonstrated in detail. The research to date will be reviewed including modified and abbreviated protocols. Within the workshop, participants will be provided child readiness tests, teaching protocols, and error correction methods. Sample data sheets and fidelity protocols will also be supplied. Attendees will walk away with everything they need to incorporate Rapid Toilet Training (RTT) into their applied behavior analytic practice.
Learning Objectives: 1. Identify readiness test components for RTT. 2. Demonstrate the teaching protocol. 3. Describe the RTT training phases with associated activities and time frames. 4. Demonstrate the error correction protocol. 5. Describe modifications that can be made to the RTT for children with autism or developmental disabilities.
Activities: Instructional strategies include: lecture, demonstration, small group breakout, and behavioral skills training.
Audience: This workshop is intended for business owners or direct service providers who are seeking to implement RTT within their service delivery. The direct service components require a knowledge of ABA methods as well as prompt fading to a degree beyond basic knowledge.
