Event description
Is your child with Down syndrome ready to potty train?

About this Event

This is a difficult thing to assess,because if you’ve met one kid with Down syndrome, you’ve met one kid with Down syndrome.

Each child may show different signs of readiness, starting in different orders, and with varying levels of intensity. Below are a few key signs that your child may be ready to start potty training.

Shows interest in personal hygiene (washing hands, brushing teeth) and self-care (dressing, taking medications/being healthy)

Shows interest in others’ toileting behavior

Completely empties bladder when urinating and stays dry for at least an hour to two hours (look for a solid stream of urine as a sign that your child has some muscular control over emptying their bladder)

Has bowel movements that follow a regular and predictable pattern

Notices when nappy or clothing is wet or soiled.

Communicates the need to go to bathroom through facial expressions, gestures, visual aids, or words

You don’t need to wait for your child to demonstrate all of these signs. What you’re looking for is for them to have an interest in using the toilet, a somewhat consistent toileting routine,and physical awareness of their own ‘need to go’.
