I was just talking about this. My son is 4 and still not trained. He is also Autistic. His doctors said some kids never train, and some are just late bloomers. We don't badger him about it, but we do keep potty training items around. We just bought him some undies, and tell him to wear them for about an hour a couple times a day, just so he can get used to the idea. Your child, in my opinion, based on how it went with mine at that age, is nowhere near ready for it. Ours showed interest at age 2, such as wanting to see what it was like, and sitting on the potty, but he didn't really grasp the idea of what he was supposed to do. If I were you, I'd wait until at least 3 to get more in depth with it, but still show potty videos, and keep the potty around. Just basically do a lot fof talking about the potty for now. Just my opinion. Hope it works out for you.
