Sex education for people with learning difficulties - questionnaire

JamesJames Posts: 1,706 Community Manager
Hey everyone :wave:

We've had a request from a student at Liverpool John Moore University who is doing some research into how to improve sex education for people with learning difficulties.

She's looking for young people with learning difficulties to answer the questions below. If you'd be interesting in sharing your thoughts, send me a PM and I'll pass your answers along :)

Here are the questions:
  • What kinds of things do you discuss in sex education and how often do you receive sex education? (Please state, e.g. “2 hour session every x week(s) for xx weeks”)
  • Do you think that coming to terms with puberty and sexual awareness is different for young people with learning disabilities compared to young people without learning disabilities/difficulties?
  • What age do you think young people with learning disabilities should be given information about sex and relationships?
  • Do you use a training packs in sex education? If so, what format is the pack in?
  • Who do you think should provide information to young people with learning disabilities about sex & relationships? (e.g. parents? teacher? doctor? nurse? friends? Other?)
  • Do you think your parents have a greater role in influencing your sexual relationships than parents of young people without learning difficulties?
  • If yes, what are the reasons for this? If no, what are the reasons for this?
  • For you, what are the main issues/difficulties with sex education resources for young people with learning disabilities?
  • How would you improve sex education for young people with learning disabilities?
