People with severe learning disability, complex and high support needs have feelings and desires towards the same stimuli as people from the general population.
How a person expresses these is unique and those in a supporting role may wonder how to address this need. This course explores what sexuality may mean for someone with severe learning disability. It will also explore the issue of access to developing relationships for people whose primary connections are with themselves and with the people in their supportive environment.
The course is based on the principle that the right to express sexuality safely means acquiring information and skills through structured, person-centred approaches, and requires particular responses and attitudes from services, staff and carers.
This course is suitable for anyone who supports people with severe learning disabilities.
