Wondering what the Potty training readiness signs look like on a child with Speech Apraxia. My son will be 3 in November and is somewhat interested in going on the big boy potty. However, due to his low muscle tone he cannot pull pants down and up...cannot tell me verbally when he has to go... and still has full diapers when he sleeps... Any advice out there?

Could you maybe use a visual aid to encourage him to let you know when he needs to go, maybe encourage him to use a picture of the potty or toilet. It probably will take hima while to get out of using nappies though.
