"Learning disabilities, sex and the law is well written and very easy to access. I really like the way it has been laid out with the use of questions and think the questions used are really useful and relevant to everyday practice. I will be able to use a lot of the content to support safeguarding training that I deliver. I will certainly be recommending it."
