Dr Fredric Daum is a pediatric gastroenterologist specializing in toilet training children with special needs who are late or unwilling to toilet train. He brings 40 years of experience working with children who are very challenging to train. It is his belief that any child with adequate receptive qualities can be toilet trained. His program is unique because of Dr. Daum's optimism and daily coaching of families until toilet training is achieved.

About 5% of children refuse to be toilet trained for stools and get into a tug of war with parents around using the toilet. Some children decide to hold back stools so they won’t have to use the toilet. Other children start holding back after they pass a painful stool and never want to have that pain again. 


Doc­tor Daum pro­vides all ser­vices by tele­phone consultation.
After the ini­tial con­sul­ta­tion, he will instruct you about the pro­gram, includ­ing the rec­om­mended dosage and tim­ing of lax­a­tives and the spe­cific strate­gies for help­ing your child become dry, clean and in under­wear 24 hours a day.
He will talk you through the treat­ment by speak­ing to you every day until suc­cess is achieved.
Doc­tor Daum’s many years of expe­ri­ence and per­son­al­ized approach will assure your child’s easy and quick success.
