SEAD – Sex education for people with learning disabilities (2012 – 2015)

Running from 2012 to 2015, the project aimed 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 SEAD (Sex education for people with learning disabilities) project sought to find innovative ways to educate effectively on sex education, including through the use of creativity and arts.

Research from European reports and comparative studies were used to compile good practices in the field and produce adapted communication tools.

Autism-Europe was a partner in this project, alongside other organisations. The project was funded by the European Union’s Grundtvig programme, under the Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP), and ran from October 2012 to September 2015.
Some of the tools created as part of the project were incorporated into the TRASE project, of which Autism-Europe was also a partner.

 About the Lifelong Learning Programme

The Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP) was designed to enable people, at any stage of their life, to take part in stimulating learning experiences, as well as developing education and training across Europe.

With a budget of almost €7 million covering the period 2007-2013, the programme funded a series of exchanges, study visits and networking activities. During the period 2014-2020, LLP’s activities continued under the new Erasmus+ programme.
