My son will be 4 in May and I am thinking even though potty training will be a long process I should start soon. He is pretty high function in most everything but speech. I know he understands a lot more than I ever give him credit for and his receptive skills are better than his expressive. Lately he's been into taking his diaper off...all the time. I want to start potty training him but don't know how. I don't believe he understands what peeing & pooping is and he does not acknowledge them. So how can I get him to tell me when he has to go or even know himself when he needs to go? I know I can keep telling him & reinforce it but how will I know he even knows what Im talking about? He only knows signs for eating and things so far & I know he would pick up the sign for potty too. How do I know when he's ready? Or is it up to me to teach him & make him be ready? Any help or advice would be great.
