Potty Time

Children with 1p36 Deletion Syndrome usual learn to use the potty later than other children if they learn at all.  We bought Aiden an Elmo potty when he was 18 months old just to introduce him to it. 
I would put Aiden on the potty just before his bath and he would usually scream to get off of it.  In the last couple of weeks, Aiden has taken an interest again in the potty.  Not sure if it because Elmo talks when you are on the potty or if Aiden sees other children using the potty at school.We put him on first thing in the morning and before his bath at night.  Over the weekend, Aiden actually went in the potty!  He was very proud of himself and clapped in excitement.  We are not pushing him to use it yet but it was a very exciting weekend at our house.
