Incontinence

I have been tasked to source a donation of nappies for a smallish 12 year-old boy, who has incontinence. I was told its because he has Autism. I am not sure that is accurate. Have you heard of this is it common?

Thanks

Hello Hazel

many children with autism who have not had treatment will have difficulty with toilet training and still require nappies. i am not sure whether incontinence is the issue? if it is only incontinence then no, it is not common and is often treatable.
i hope that helps.
