Most children simply outgrow bedwetting. But for those who don’t, the first step is to rule out a medical condition. If that’s not the cause, there are two evidence-based options: medication or behavior modification. Many parents prefer to try the behavioral approach, before giving their child medication.
An alarm could be a good idea, but as with any tool, it depends on how you use it. The alarm can wake your child, but not prevent bedwetting in the future if you don’t use the correct protocol to change the behavior. A Board Certified Behavior Analyst can help you choose the right tools and use the fundamentals of behavioral science to change the behavior and put an end to bedwetting.
We’ll start with a conversation, by phone or video conference, to get a clear understanding of your specific circumstances. Together, we’ll develop plan that’s tailored to your child and aligned with your parenting style. Then, I’ll guide you every step of the way, answering questions and making refinements if needed.
A Behavior Analyst is a clinician, trained to implement behavioral procedures in the real world with a clear understanding of the difference between theory and reality.
