Function-based Practice: The Rifton Support Station
April 10, 2012

As an Occupational Therapist I view toileting as a functional life skill, not as an interruption to the day. The product that makes this possible is the Rifton Support Station.
For each of the more than twenty students on my caseload I incorporate a toileting objective on their IEP. And for those students using the Support Station, I will work with them once a day for their toileting routine.
