Sexual Health Education for Adolescents with Intellectual Disabilities
Research has shown that individuals with intellectual disabilities have the desire to learn about sexual health issues and often have engaged in sexual activities. Adolescents with intellectual disabilities, like all individuals, have the right to sexual health education that provides them with the knowledge, skills, and ability to make decisions related to their own sexual health. This evidence summary highlights common myths and research evidence about providing sexual education to adolescents with intellectual disabilities. Recommendations for education programs and resources are also provided.
