I know there are a lot of posts on potty training tips. I was wondering, though, how did you know your child was ready? You hear stories about "regular" kids saying "potty" or showing signs that they are controlling their bladder like holding themselves, etc... How about our kids with Down syndrome? My son is almost 2 and 1/2. I wanted to start introducing the potty to him. He rarely gets fussy if he is wet or poopy. If you ask him if he is done making poo, he will sign "all done". Other than that, I have no idea if it's time for him.
I went to a conference and sat in on a potty training session. This question was asked, but the speaker had no answer. (she usually works mainly with kids with autism) Are there signs I should keep an eye out for?
