A range of authors share their direct experience of working with people with learning disabilities on sexual issues. They give ideas on helping people with learning disabilities to learn about their bodies and sex. The focus is on what staff and family members can do themselves, but it also recommends when specialist help may be needed. Ideas for further reading and specialist organisations are included.
