‘Conquering a CODE BROWN’ by Rebecca Khan (with Zi Mei Events)


Dates: Wednesday 19 June, 2024 (12:30-4:00pm)


Location: Online 


Faecal smearing (“Code Brown”), also called scatolia in medical literature, is common in children with significant developmental delays (eg Autism, ADHD, intellectual disability), trauma (eg abuse, PTSD) or mental health concerns (eg anxiety, OCD). It also occurs in normally developing (“neurotypical”) children. For parents who have children who engage in scatolia, it is stressful, exhausting, socially isolating and downright gross.

Workshop Objectives – this module will provide participants with:

  • an understanding of the medical, sensory and behavioural presentations/reasons for smearing
  • approaches and intervention strategies that can be used to discourage the behaviour
  • ways to supporting families, while customising a plan to resolve the issues
