If you’ve read my post on ‘Do you wash your hands before or after you pee?‘, you’ll realize my child has the tendency to wash his hands before he pee-s, as he sees the entire process as just needing to complete all the steps but not in a logical sequence. I used this simple way which solved our toilet hygiene issue.
As C is a highly visual learner, I decided to use the PECS system to solve this issue. So far, it’s working out well. I’ve placed this board in the common toilet so when every time C goes to the toilet, he sees the board. For the first few times, he needed reminder to follow the sequence. Now, I do not need to be with him and I can hear happily three tearing sounds, which indicates that he has completed the steps.
C is really happy to have the board in the toilet. When he completes his toilet routine in the correct sequence, he will receive a high-five from me or dad. He looks forward to the high-five and I look forward to giving it to him.
Happy week ahead readers!
