Hi everyone, I feel like this Summer will be the one for toilet training!
My little man is 3yo and just beginning to speak. His receptive language is good, he does some signing and has limited verbal communication, but overall still has a long way to go. We are on a waiting list for testing for ASD.
I feel he might be ready beause he can now pull his pants up and down, he knows how to hold his poo & wee (he holds it until we're home with poo), we read books on the subject and he knows what a toilet is for. Last week he told Daddy on two separate occasions when he had gone poo in his nappy. But he doesn't want to tell me, Mummy, about it. I'm not sure if that is embarrassment or if he just prefers Daddy right now. He often runs off somewhere quiet to do his business before telling us.
I would love to hear from anyone with advice on how to accomplish toilet training with a mostly non-verbal child. He doesn't announce his needs very often. Thank you.
