Any Ideas on how to train a 3 1/2 year boy, that only sais a word here and there?

My son dosnt talk like most 3 1/2 year olds do, i cant have conversations with him wich makes it hard to tell him why he needs to use the potty. recently he started saying "fufu" when he had a dirty diaper, then he started to say it just before, and i figured this was what i had been waiting for, but now when i put him on the potty he holds it up all day, when before he would make like 5 dirty diapers a day. at first he was ok with sitting on the potty but now he dosnt want to go on anymore and dosnt tell me "fufu" every time , cause he knows then he has to go on the potty. Help me figure out what to do, cause my patience is running out.

you should make it a game...if he pees in the potty he should be rewarded and praised...if he poops in the potty he should get a really big reward and highly praised. this will make him feel really good ab himself and that pooping in the potty is the best thing ever!!!!!! i used m&ms for my nephew and he thought that was great and wanted to go all the time. you just have to figure out what he will like then go from there..if you read to him that should help his vocabulary to increase. also ask him questions and allow him to answer you. or just try to carry on a conversation with him and he will eventually get the hang of it. you just have to teach him what needs to be done and how to speak....not easy i know but if you stick with it eventually he will catch on
