About our Project
It is our goal to increase the competence of the people, including families, who serve individuals with developmental disabilities through dissemination, training, technical assistance and interagency collaboration.
- Information collection and dissemination on the subject of bathroom/toileting competence for people with disabilities to: parents, educators, agency staff, child care providers, therapeutic services providers, health care professionals, individuals with disabilities and other interested parties.
- Provide training, collaboration and telephone support to individuals, schools, agencies, and others who regularly come in contact with individuals with disabilities and who may be in a position to promote and implement toilet training programs.
- Provide follow-up telephone technical assistance and support to teams who need help developing a toileting plan or locating specific resources to carry out a toileting plan.
- Promote interagency collaboration at all levels and the establishment of independent toileting as a priority for all people with developmental disabilities because of its profound impact on a person's health, self esteem, and ability to be self-sufficient.
