Sex Ed. for Individuals with I/DD

The National Council on Independent Living’s new project helps people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) learn about sex.

Some of the things in this project are:

  • What sex is
  • What gender is
  • What a healthy relationship looks like
  • How someone can get pregnant
  • How to protect yourself against sexually transmitted diseases and infections

This project has two parts including a series of videos and a discussion guide. This project is important because people with I/DD can use the videos and guide by themselves. The videos and guide were made for people with I/DD to use even if they don’t have someone to help them.
