Toilet trainerNatasha, aged 6, has severe cerebral palsy and could not support herself on a potty and later on a toilet without assistance.

To allow her to go from nappies to a potty, a box was constructed which allowed her potty to be slid underneath, allowing her to support herself on the edges of the box. She eventually needed to progress to using the proper toilet seat, so a second box was made with two stainless steel handles fitted. She sat on the box and then levered herself up on to the toilet seat.

Natasha can now use the grown-up toilet unaided.
