Bathroom help at school

My son with DMD is 10 and is now in a power chair full time. He is having a hard time balancing when we stand him up to take a step or two from wheelchair to toilet. im wondering if we need to consider a condom catheter urinal at school. To use a regular urinal, I will need to get him adaptive clothing. That's an option too. Can anyone tell me what works well? He is already over 100 lbs and I'm afraid the special Ed aide will not be able to continue transferring him. Thanks!
