Toilet Training The Child With Down Syndrome

I found this article about potty training children with Down Syndrome: Toilet Training The Child With Down Syndrome. (Click the link to read the entire article.)

Key points to take away after reading this author's advice:

1. Use a schedule. Find out how often the child needs to urinate or poop, and then take them to the toilet twice as often. (For example, if they go every two hours, take them to the toilet every one hour.)

2. Teach a physical sign for the child to be able to use to demonstrate the need to use the bathroom. (For example, have the child tap their nose.) Use this in conjunction with verbal communication.

3. Make it fun, yet have the child participate in clean-up of accidents. This is a key concept that I also teach in The Potty Boot Camp. (Actions have consequences.)

4. Let the child help make the decision to train. If they are very resistant, wait a while before commencing the learning process. Widgets
