    Default Funding for nappies?

    I was talking yestreday with DS' speechy and she said there is funding for nappies available but she is not sure who through.
    As we are not making any progress with toilet training I thought I might look into this, does anyone have any information?

    A lot of your local disability societies offer their own funding packages for incontinence in special needs children. There can be waiting lists, but the one we were in started at 4 or 5.

    One purchase I recommend highly, if you haven't already got one, is a waterproof doona cover protector. It was so invaluable with my son that we got one for all the kids. Saves a fortune in replacing smelly doonas.

    Hi. Yes there is the Continece Aids payment scheme - CAPS
    you do have to be over 6 years.
    Better than nothing but it's only $500 a year. Dosn't go far when a carton of pads is $108 and only lasts 3 weeks!
    All the best
