Bowel & Bladder Assessment Pack: A guide for carers and professionals helping children and young people with a learning disability, physical disability, autism or complex needs to be successful with toileting.
By Charmaine Champ (2016). Published by Interconnections.
Some children and teenagers with a learning disability, physical disability, autism or complex needs remain incontinent of the bowel and bladder.
This has a serious impact on their self-esteem and on social and play activities. For parents and carers at home or in school there are added time pressures, increased physical demands and very significant costs.
With her understanding of the many factors that can hinder toileting success at any age, Charmaine Champ has developed the Bowel & Bladder Assessment Pack. This enables a comprehensive whole-child assessment, gathering all relevant information and ensuring all aspects of a child's continence needs are considered and addressed.
The Bowel & Bladder Assessment Pack includes an Assessment Form and Monitoring Charts to copy for use with individual children.
There is more information here about the Interconnections continence initiative and about Charmaine Champ, our continence consultant and trainer.
The Bowel & Bladder Assessment Pack is available now from Interconnections and Amazon at £18.00.
