How do I make an appointment?

To schedule an initial appointment, please call 617-355-7025.

We will send you an email containing an overview of the program’s information, approximate wait time, as well as the intake paperwork. A member of our staff will then reach out to you to help schedule your first appointment.

What happens in the first visit?

We will spend your child’s first appointment discussing their medical history, toilet training history, and any current behaviors surrounding toileting. Next, you will share any physical concerns that you may have about your child about toileting. The clinician will let you know if we recommend any testing.

After this, the clinician will work with you and your child to develop a personalized plan based on your child’s condition. This plan may include behavioral interventions to do at home, certain medications, or both.

Follow-up appointments occur typically every six weeks to monitor progress and to adjust the program and interventions. Your child’s care team will continue to follow them until both you and the provider feel your child has successfully gained all the skills needed.
