NCIL Introduces "Sex Ed for Individuals with I/DD" October 2nd, 2019

The National Council on Independent Living’s new project helps people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) learn about sex.

Some of the things we talk about in this project are:

  • What sex is

  • What gender is

  • What a healthy relationship looks like

  • How someone can get pregnant

  • How to protect yourself against sexually transmitted diseases and infections

This project is important because people with I/DD can use the videos and guide by themselves. You can ask someone to help you if you want. But the videos and guide were made for people with I/DD to use even if they don’t have someone to help them. If you work at a Center for Independent Living, you can use this project with your consumers with I/DD.
