Knowing When Your Toddler Is Ready To Get Potty Trained
It sure is frustrating to try to potty train a toddler before he or she is ready. Knowing When Your Toddler Is Ready To Get Potty Trained gives you tips to know if your little one is ready. Often, special needs children are late with potty training due to weak muscles, delayed language, or medical complications; this is not always the case, as I once had an 18 month old client with mild cerebral palsy be successfully potty trained. As suggested, kids need some form of communication, but not necessarily words. I have worked with many kids with autism who indicate the need to go potty with pictures or sign language. So, don't assume that your special needs toddler may not be ahead of his peers with this skill!
