Bodily function control is the inability to control when and where certain bodily functions occur.
Difficulty in controling bodily functions refers to bowel incontinence, urinary incontinence, and also upper gastrointestinal concerns such as heartburn and vomiting. Students may have gastrointestinal disorders or be undergoing treatment with side effects that impact bodily function control. Students mayhave difficulty with bodily function control, may be frequently absent, or may need to leave the classroom for short periods.
