At what age did your child dress themselves? Edit...

When did they start putting their own clothes on by themselves?  After reading everyone's replies....

my 6 yr old ds can do everything but his pants and socks....if I start his pants, he can pull them up, he can't do socks yet. My 3 yr old ds helps with his shirt, but can't do anything else. Both boys are autistic and I know they are both behind, but I'm not sure if its because of the autism. I posted in the autism group, but only got 1 response...

As in pick out their own clothes and get dressed, just the ability to put clothes on by themselves?

 My oldest was 4 when I made her take over. She started picking her own clothes and putting them on by herself then. My 3 year old is still working on the putting them on part, but she picks them really well.

DS started at 2 picking his cloths out, no not everything matched.  At 3 he started to dress himself with a little help for balance.

I don't know what the average age should be, but my dd is 3 and can dress herself. She needs some help with buttons, and with tights but other wise she can do everything.

2 or 3. They were both around 4 or 5 when they could actually match their clothes. It was a long battle to convince my DD that her entire outfit did not have to be pink.

I'd say 2 they started and mastered it around 3.
