Potty training 2yr old that isn't talking yet

How can I start training my daughter if she doesn't speak yet? She is showing interest in the potty and bathroom and will sit on her potty but plays around. She will grab herself and if you ask if she has gone pee or poop she kinda says yuke. Any tips moms?

My daughter is 6 now, but I potty trained her when she was 2 in two weeks. She didn't speak either, to this day she is in speech therapy. I put her panties on and only put diapers on her at night until i got off the sippy cup to bed. And as weird as it seems I had to leave her potty where she could see it, as a reminder that she's wearing big girl panties and needs to use her potty, so i started with her room since she was in their most of the time playing. I reminded her of the potty being their numerous times and she used it! Although a couple times forgot to pull her panties down. But it was progress. I slowly moved the potty to bathroom, I left the light on and also left the potty where she could see as she ran by back and fourth, I even caught her run by, stop and go back deciding yeah i need to potty, she'd go do her business then be off to playing. This worked like a charm for me. In two weeks she was completely potty trained!
