My son is 5 and will be starting kindergarten next year. I been trying to potty train hin since he was 2-3 with no luck. At the end of his terrible two's. I noticed some developmental delay. He didn't start walking till he was 18 months or talking until he was 2. I had tests ran on him to find out that he was in fact developmentally delayed. More tests showed that he had symptoms of ADD/ADHD and autism. He has been diagnosed with all three. My son is very smart and does very well in pre-k. His speech is definitely improving and he loves school. I just can't get him potty trained. I try to let him wear underwear during the day and Good-Nites at night. He will go by himself sometimes and sometimes he will not. He will pee in the toilet but not do the other. I have tried everything I can think of like Cheerios in the toilet, rewarding him with toys, chips, candy, stickers, taking him to the restroom when I go, making him go every hour when he gets home from school, and his teachers also make him go regularly when he is at school. What else can I do to help him do both things in the toilet could his lack of potty training be due to his developmental delays?
