Project: Psychological problems and incontinence in Chromosome Disorders

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

Dear parents, dear caregivers,


Bladder and bowel control are an important milestone in every child’s development and are relevant for independence and social acceptance. Incontinence (bedwetting, daytime wetting, soiling) can be stressful and demanding for parents, caregivers and affected persons, although they can be treated effectively.

So far, no studies on incontinence in persons with Chromosome Disorders have been conducted. In order to improve counselling and treatment for parents and affected persons, the Department of Child an Adolescent Psychiatry, University of Saarland (Homburg, Germany) is conducting a study on incontinence in children, adolescents and adults with Chromosome Disorders. This study will be of great help for other families with children with Chromosome Disorders.


We would be pleased if you could support our study:

If you are a parent, caregiver of or an affected person with Chromosome Disorders we would be very thankful if you could fill out 3 questionnaires about Chromosome Disorders (estimated time: 25 min).

Please complete the following contact form and we will send you the questionnaires which you can send back to us cost-free and anonymously.


It is a matter of concern for us to reach as many families as possible, even though the person is not affected by incontinence.


Thank you very much for your help!
