He will potty train when he is ready you cant force him to do it. maybe yall need some type of counsler that can explain how to handle his behavior and how to help him more. a lot of kids dont potty train until 3.

This is really hard to read. So, I'll just say my DS wasn't potty trained until he was 3. He will come around on his own time.

This. Mine wasn't ready until 3 either. If they aren't ready, they aren't ready. Forcing them makes it ten times harder. GL!

I would enroll him in school. My dd started going to school when she was 1. Ask the teacher next time you see him/her, they should know of a school for kids with special needs. As for potty training- I wouldn't push it. Let him play with it. Buy more diapers or pull ups. When He's ready you'll know. On my dd's 4th birthday she said she was ready. It took 2 days and we were done.

I wouldn't push the potty training at this point as it will only add to his frustration and yours. He is still quite young. I have 4 year old twin boys and they just became potty trained this summer. I started trying when they were 3 and they had no interest. After a lot of frustration I decided to just let it go and let them do it when they were ready. One of my boys is completely trained, my other boy still poops his pants quite often. They both wear GoodNights to sleep in but they are usually dry in the morning.

My girls weren't fully potty trained until 4 years old. They didn't even seem interested until around 3 or later so I would push the issue too much. You might consider speech therapy as far as helping him learn how to express his needs.

Some basic sign language wouldn't hurt either. My dd was using sign before she was speaking. Kids pick it up quick.

 Kids will learn to potty train when they're ready.  My twins weren't ready until they were over the age of three and we still have the occasional accident.

My advice is not to rush it and if rewards work with him in other areas try that.

What does you pediatrician say?  Have you discussed this with him/her?

He'll do it when he's ready, mine was close to 3 when he was potty trained. But my daughter is 18 months and starting the process. Its up to them.
