Continence

Bowel & Bladder Continence

We take the issue of bowel and bladder continence very seriously at Interconnections. Our long experience tells us it is a serious issue for families of children and teenagers who have some sort of disability or special needs.

Incontinence is socially isolating, it gets in the way of learning and leisure activity and it wastes a lot of money. In very many cases, incontinence of bowel or bladder persists because no one offers effective help.

Interconnections has published two books on the subject by Charmaine Champ. She is a Registered Nurse in Learning Disabilities (RNLD Diploma in Health and Social Work), with a BSc (Hons) Community Nurse Specialist Practice Degree.

Charmaine has over twenty years’ experience in supporting adults and children who have a learning disability, physical disability, autism, complex needs or special educational needs to achieve toileting success. The books are:

‘Bowel & Bladder Assessment Pack’ – a guide for professionals

‘Bobby can use the toilet’ – a social story to use with children
