Proximal chromosome 18q deletion syndrome

Can individuals with proximal chromosome 18q deletion syndrome be toilet trained?

While each child is different, most individuals with this condition can be toilet trained. The age is generally somewhat later than their peers. Some may need to wear protective clothing or undergarments at night, as nighttime continence is variable and can be more difficult to achieve.
