For teachers, coaches, professionals, and nurses:
School districts may offer unique challenges for parents whose children are suffering from encopresis. Education professionals can play a significant role in a child’s success in preventing and solving encopresis, whether it’s providing regular access to toilet facilities or recognizing signs of a constipated child.
The beauty of The Soiling Solutions® protocol is that by emphasizing parental intervention at home, it quickly eliminates daytime encopresis accidents in school. Parents can interrupt the vicious cycle of child withholding and fear of accidents by using suppositories and enemas to assist the child with having a daily bowel movement, and hopefully remaining accident-free for a 24-hour period. This will keep children safe from in-school accidents!
Nurses and teachers can shine as coaches, encouraging the protocol with parents. Measures such as providing access to a quiet toilet where a child can change his pants if an accident occurs can make a huge difference!
