Please can anyone help with the following request from our Merseyside panel who do not the expertise required in this case.
The client is a boy, aged 13 who has a urinary problem which until recently has been controlled using a wet sensor fitted in his trousers which sounds an alarm when he needs to urinate. As he wears this in school he now finds this embarrassing each time the alarm sounds and he then, due to a speech difficulty, has to put his hand up to indicate he needs to go. His mother, now living in our area, originally dealt with the Leeds panel several years ago and they then fitted the alarm system which she thinks could now be modified to actually speak to request permission to go to the toilet . Could you please progress this through Leeds and all other panels to see if there is a solution. The mother has given me her telephone no which is available from Central Office and if someone can offer assistance they should contact her direct for a better understanding of the current situation and her requirements. I would appreciate it if you would keep me informed of any developments.
