Pagination:

This illustrated easy-to-read booklet is for people with a learning disability who find it difficult to talk about any problems they have with going to the toilet. It describes how people can keep healthy by looking after their bladder and bowels. It also deals with the problems they sometimes have with going to the toilet and the people who can help. Relatively little has been written about continence in relation to people with a learning disability. This has been produced in partnership with people who have a learning disability to rectify this situation. The issues covered are those which the people involved felt were most pertinent to their needs and those of others. They should provide stimulus for discussion. The easy-read format gives messages which are clear, easy to understand and directly relevant. Many illustrations enhance the text.
