People with learning disabilities have hopes for making friends, having good relationships and having a special person in their life. Communicating those wishes, including their sexuality needs, requires those involved in supporting their lifestyle to work together.
Parents and carers are a valuable resource in creating positive partnerships with staff and with the person with learning disability. Working together, parents/carers and staff can gain a full understanding of the sexuality needs of the person with learning disability, address the issues identified, and respond using a consistent approach.
This course considers what is required to develop a dialogue and working relationship on this sensitive aspect of personal life with an adult with learning disability.
