  • what about posting a picture chart in the bathroom showing each step in pottying -- and having the visual cues there it is a reminder of what comes next. My oldest is on the spectrum and I have found that if I break things down step by step it is easier and he does not get overwhelmed by 'the big picture' of it all. Good luck!

  • I would get a book that described it and just follow the steps in the book.

  • Be careful-especially if moving?? Usually state is involved with child's care and he could be placed elsewhere?? Remember......
