How To Potty Train Your Special Needs Child

Challenges in teaching a child with special needs.

Due to kids such as Savannah having Cerebral Palsy or another disability, they may not consistently have ability to talk. Therefore, she has difficulty communicating when she has to go to the bathroom. Additionally, your special one needs assistance to physically go to the bathroom. When you are out and about in the community, Savannah and peers need their bathroom needs met in some way. Many parents may give up on the idea of their child ever being potty trained. However, it is possible for your child to be trained to use the bathroom like a normal kid.

Steps to potty training

1. Purchase a potty chair

2. Take Notes

Take notes of the approximate times your child urinates and has a bowel movement.

3. Communicate with your child

Verbally and visually communicate with your child that it is time to go to the bathroom. Show her a picture representing the bathroom. Inform your child that you will be helping to the bathroom. Therefore, save their bathroom business for the toilet and stay dry. To motivate them, singing a custom song about the bathroom may help.

Use sign language to talk with your special someone.

Augmentative devices are also helpful, for instance a Big or Little Mack.

4. Put your child on the potty at noted times

Put your child on the potty at the times you noted that she frequently goes. Place her on toilet when awake, immediately after meals and snacks, right before bed. Savannah also uses the bathroom an hour or two between meals.

5. Plan for potty needs out in the community

While you and your child are out in the community, find a way for your child to use the restroom. 1. Hold up your child on the public toilet. 2. Sit with her on the toilet while holding her. Another option is purchasing and bringing a portable potty chair or seat with you where ever you go.
