Abstract:

Although often related, daytime and nighttime continence are separate skills. Some children who have difficulty with daytime toilet training seem to have no issues with overnight training. On the other hand, many children who have achieved daytime continence with relative ease seem to be delayed in achieving overnight training.  Treatment options must be tailored to the reason behind the toileting issue and include physiological, environmental, behavioral, maturational and sometimes socio-emotional interventions. The current workshop will present the audience with procedures for conducting an assessment of the problem behavior and how to collect functional assessment data that will be helpful in guiding treatment.  Treatment options, based on function, will be presented. Behavioral treatments, including contingency contracting, wetness signaling alarms, dry-bed training and antecedent strategies will be discussed in detail. Relevant research will be cited where appropriate. A brief review of daytime toileting procedures, including bladder training, will be provided. Time will be left for audience questions. 

Learning Objectives:

    1. The participants will be able to identify effective treatments based on function of overnight toileting accidents.
    2. The participants will be able to identify when issues include a physiological component and identify three physiological treatments that may be helpful.
    3. The participants will be able to select three behavioral treatment strategies for overnight incontinence.
    4. The participants will be able to select methods of determining function of toileting accidents.
