Here's the breakdown of week 1. . .
- Started day at level 1
- 4 accidents, 0 successes
- She doesn't seem to care being wet, and sometimes urinates when she gets excited. She moved from Level 1 to 2, but that is when most accidents occurred.
- Started day at level 1
- 4 accidents (school actually didn't give me number so going on previous day's total) , 0 successes
- She seems to urinate right after she gets off the potty so tomorrow they will increase her time on potty from 10 minutes to 15-20 minutes (then off for 5), to see if they can catch a success
- Started day at level 1 (well, technically not level one since scheduled sit is upped to 15-20 minutes)
- Several accidents, 1 success!! (Urinated while sitting on toilet!)
- She is no longer given access to a moderately preferred reinforcer while on the toilet. And stays in the bathroom during the 5 minutes off the toilet. After the one success, she got lots of praise, access to her highly preferred reinforcer (iPad) and was taken out to swing on the playground. Then back to the restroom for another scheduled sit. After one scheduled sit she got off the toilet and immediately began to urinate. Her teacher put her right back on to finish on the toilet and Clara clenched and stopped once back on. Smart cookie. :-)
- Started at level 1 (20 minute sit, 5 minutes off, no access to reinforcer while sitting)
- 1 accident, no successes (Due to another appt, she was only at school for about 3 hrs this day)
- Started at level 1
- 2 accidents, 2 successes!! Woohoo!
Her BCBA came home with us Friday for a little while to train us in the weekend protocol. We will work from level 1, except are only required to do 10 minute sits followed by 5 minutes off, not the 20 minute sits they are doing at school. She is allowed access to moderately preferred items while on the toilet (only if she needs a distraction to keep her on) and while off the potty. Her favorite things/activities (iPad or certain light up toys, going out to swing, cuddling the bear in her room, playing on our bed) will only be used to reinforce success.
She had two accidents at home Friday evening and no success, but we are hoping and praying for a great day today! (Note - She had a 30 min sit post dinner, since she drank a ton with her meal and we were hoping to catch a success. After that sit we were done for the day.)
Before each scheduled sit we prompt her with a picture of the potty from her PECS book. She is required to pull off picture, hand to us, then we walk to the restroom.
If you need us, there is a 99.9 % chance we are right here. . .
Can she even pee like this??? Love her!
Stay tuned! Or not, maybe just unsubscribe for a while . . . lots of potty talk in the near future . . .
