Potty training

Any tips for potty training a non-verbal 4 year old with autism? I would say he’s developmentally about 2.

I am interested in general potty training an autistic child answers, but would especially appreciate answers that take the following factors into consideration.

His older brother is also non-verbal and autistic.  One of his quirks is that he cannot stand anything being on the walls so decorating the bathroom is a no go.

To keep any toys as “potty time only” I would have to shut them both out of the bathroom and the elder is just recently succeeding with using the toilet for pee. I don’t want to make it difficult for him to go independently.
