Continence Project


The mission of the Continence Project is to make a difference in the lives of individuals through the acquisition of independent toileting. Mastery of toilet learning promotes full inclusion at home, school and in the community, and has a profound impact on a person's health, self-esteem, dignity, and quality of life.
The Continence Project is a collaborative project of the Vermont I-Team at CDCI, the Vermont Agency of Education, Vermont Department of Aging and Independent Living, and Vermont Department of Health Children with Special Health Needs.
