New sex education project for people with learning disabilities

The SEAD project (Sexual Education for Adults with Disabilities, their parents and staff) will develop new and creative ways to effectively educate people with learning disabilities about sexual health and relationships.

The project aims to address the lack of information and knowledge in the field of sex education among adults with learning disabilities, their parents and staff of relevant organisations. The project seeks to find innovative ways to educate effectively on this topic, including through the use of creativity and arts. Research from European reports and comparative studies will be used to compile good practices in the field and produce adapted communication tools.

Autism-Europe is a partner in this project, among other organisations.

The project is funded by the European Union’s Grundtvig programme and will run from October 2012 to September 2015.
