There has been such a demand for this topic and I’m really excited to get the ball rolling on potty training. My guest today is Molly Johnson, otherwise known as The Autism Consultant. She’s here to share some potty training tips and tricks. .
Molly is an autism consultant, working with parents to reduce challenging behaviors and teach their child new skills. When working with parents, Molly helps families understand the reason for the barrier and how to move beyond that barrier in a way that meets the child’s needs.
Molly has experience working with school-age children and young adults on the spectrum. Through her work as an autism teacher and autism parent consultant, Molly has worked with autistic individuals and their families in a variety of settings, including public schools, a university, a private autism program, and in an online setting.
Molly’s journey as an autism consultant began during her time as an autism classroom teacher when she started a podcast, The Autism Consultant Podcast, addressing how she helped her students move beyond their struggles, improve challenging behavior, and teach new skills.

Learn more about Goally
As parents, it sometimes feels like we are constantly nagging our kids to work on their daily living routines. Things like hygiene and bedtime, and homework can be so challenging. We know our kids need to learn this stuff, especially as they move towards independence, but sometimes there’s just not enough time in a day.
Parenting is tough. Trying to balance everything when it comes to raising kids is not easy, and sometimes as parents, we could use a little help. Enter Goally. Goally is a digital visual scheduler, AAC talker, token board system, and more all rolled into one easy-to-use app. It’s made for unique thinkers like autistic kids and kids with ADHD.
Kids together with Goally can conquer daily routines and therapy practice without prompting from mom or dad. This reduces that feeling of nagging your kids, and it also grants your kids some autonomy to sort of manage their own lives. Goally can easily be used on your child’s existing device or with Goally’s optional and affordable, dedicated device.
In my house, we found that the dedicated device seems to work better for my son, so that’s what we use. For more information, you can visit getgoally.com. That’s g-e-t-g-o-a-l-l-y.com; and use the code “theautismdad” and save 10% off your order.
