Sexuality in People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

The Sexuality & Disability Consortium (SDC) with the Institute on Disability and Human Development at the University of Illinois at Chicago has a wealth of sexuality resources available on their website to support people with disabilities to enhance healthy sexuality and relationships.

Included with their resources are Fact Sheets on topics such as:

  • Myths and Misperceptions of Disability and Sexuality
  • Guardianship and Consent Talking About Sexuality Tips for Parents
  • Teaching about Privacy for Families and Caregivers of Children with I/DD

The SDC is a group of people working together to provide research, advocacy, training and education to support people with disabilities to have healthy sexuality and relationships that they choose. The SDC promotes best practice approaches and provides training and education for people with disabilities, their families, and the professionals who work with them.
