A wooden toilet seat and cover was purchased. The cover was modified to become a seat by cutting a hole in the cover and rounding the edges to ensure maximum comfort. The existing cover was attached to the new seat and the assembly refitted to the toilet bowl. When the cover is closed the toilet in his bathroom is indistinguishable from a conventional unit.
The little boy can now use the toilet without assistance, boosting his morale and improving his independence. The new seat can be enlarged as he grows, until he is confident to use a standard seat.
