About the SHEIDD Project

Learn more about the SHEIDD project

The Sexual Health Equity for Individuals with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities (SHEIDD) project is a group of community members and organizations working together as a Community Advisory Group to promote comprehensive sexual health education for young people ages 14-21 with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Community Advisory Group is the heart of the SHEIDD project and works to help us realize our vision.

Why these sexual health resources?

The resources on this website are reviewed and selected by members of the SHEIDD Community Advisory Group. We work to share sexual health resources that are holistic, inclusive, and rights-based, in alignment with the SHEIDD Guidelines for Supporting the Sexual Health of Young People Experiencing I/D.
