Abstract

This study focuses on sex and relationships learning and is concerned with the securing of sexual rights for people with learning disabilities. The intent is to identify the characteristics of effective sex and relationship learning as well as address the broader role that adults can play to enable safe, happy and fulfilling personal relationships for children and young people with learning disabilities. What will result is an understanding of what social justice means in the lives of people with a learning disability and how this might be applied to personal and sexual relationships. What will be claimed is the right to (and the experience of) relationships lived as an integral part of a life lived with human dignity.
