I have a 7 year old that is in the first grade. She has Down Syndrome and has significant delays. She is still in pull-ups and does not want to be potty trained. I've talked with other parents that have suggested setting a timer throughout the day and taking her often. She goes a little bit throughout the day and it's usually in between potty breaks. She doesn't like to have her day interrupted with repeated trips either. We've put her in panties and tried taking her every hour. After 7 clothes changes, I put the pull-up back on.
I'm wondering if I should just give up and let her wear diapers for a while and try in a few months. She has a para at school who takes her about 5 times during the school day and she also reports little success.
We've been dealing with this for years...I'm so tired and don't know what to do.
