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 project sought 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 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 wasfunded by the European Union’s Grundtvig programme and ran from October 2012 to September 2015.
Some of the tools created as part of the project have are being incorporated into the TRASE project, of which Autism-Europe is also a partner.
