The Continence Assessment Forms below suggest which questions should be asked as part of a comprehensive continence assessment for a child or teenager. The forms explain why the questions should be asked and what the child's answers might mean. The forms signpost to sources of further information and other useful tools.

The assessment forms can be used to document a child's bladder and bowel behaviour and as a teaching aid.

Use the first form to assess a child who has been toilet trained. Use the second form to assess a child who has not yet been toilet trained.
