Downs Syndrome child wetting himself

My 17 year old potty trained child has recently been wetting himself at school. He looks about 7 or 8 and weighs 89 lbs. He is non-verbal but understands very well. He has no real behavior problems and has a very good nature. He is very fond of his teacher. He has wet himself about 4 days in a row. I do believe he is getting ample opportunities to go to the bathroom. At home he just goes on his own. He has been potty trained about 8 years. Does anyone have any suggestions or information?.

You should ask him if he is not being aloud to use the washroom or if someone at school is bothering him. If not then he could have a bladder infection.
