Managing Bed-Wetting for A Child with Special Needs
Millions of children worldwide experience problems with bedwetting – and it is more common among children with special needs.
While some grow out of bedwetting, it takes time and there often are relapses, sometimes due to illness or changes in routine. The key to handling bedwetting is to love and support a child throughout the situation. Always reinforce that it is not their fault, and never punish.

Another proven way to stop bed-wetting in children with special needs is to use a bed-wetting alarm at night. These alarms use moisture-detecting sensors that trigger the alarm and wake up a sleeping child when bed-wetting occurs. Most modern alarms also come with a vibrating feature that can alert children with hearing or visual disabilities. Sometimes, these types of alarms may be covered by insurance. Go to our website and chat in real time with a Continuum Connect representative to see what products your insurance covers.
