Sexuality and Relationship Development Programmes

This is one of a series of programmes was designed by the National Institute of Intellectual Disability Studies along with Dr Michelle McCarthy University of Kent  Tizard Center to provide organisations and all those who work in them, with the values,  attitudes, competence, knowledge and skills to support people with Intellectual disabilities with their sexual development and expression.  

 

The programme draws on the findings from research we conducted in Ireland, into the real experiences of people with Intellectual disabilities. We asked questions about how they live their lives and what they think they need and want. The research was conducted by Martha McGinn under the supervision of Dr Hilary Brown.  40 service users, 40 parents and 40 staff were interviewed for this research.  

 

We also reference some of the work from Supported Loving which is a comprehensive UK based website, devoted to supporting people with Intellectual Disabilities, to help them to navigate their way through all the complexities of relationships and sexual expression.

 

The 5 modules are as follows:

  • Module 1 Values, Attitudes and Barriers – Sexuality and Relationship Development
  • Module 2 Stages of Sexual Development and Relationship Building
  • Module 3 Rights, Responsibilities, Consent and the Law in Ireland
