In Their Own Words: Guidelines for Supporting the Sexual Health of Young People Experiencing Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities
This guide is for everyone to learn what they can do to support the sexual health of youth with I/DD.
To learn more about their sexual health needs, the SHEIDD project asked youth with disabilities what help they needed. We also asked people involved in their lives what support they need to provide sexual health education.
We used this input to develop guidelines for providing sexual health education to youth with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities.
