Child Development Timetable for Potty Training
Sent:Sun 1/30/2005 10:20 AM
To whom it concerns;
I am a Child Development Specialist/Early Interventionist. I want to commend you for providing parents with the Child's Potty Training Development by Age
My suggestion is to add a notation that parents be aware that all children, especially children with developmental delays, do not always fit the charts for children with no delays.
If a parent goes to your website, they should be encouraged to look at the chart based on their child's developmental skills level, not the chronological age.
This would help early interventionists who work with children based on their developmental age. Even though we emphasize this to parents, they still want their child to be "normal".
Also, a suggestion to try to develop a potty training doll that uses a wheelchair. It is such a shame on the industry to not address children with different abilities such as in wheelchairs, using braces/walking canes, etc.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. We, as early interventionists, struggle with this all the time.
