Limited Capacity seats available

There is a void when it comes to the voices of people labeled as having intellectual disabilities regarding their own sexuality; their perspectives have not been described. This research study explores the existing literature that discusses the perspectives of others and then studies the perspectives and experiences of people who have intellectual disabilities about sexuality. Individuals labeled as having intellectual disabilities can, and should, be a part of these discussions about their own sexuality. We must continue to progress so that individuals labeled as having disabilities may be more fully included in all aspects of life.

Learning Objectives:

1. As a result of this session participants will be able to gain a better understanding of the perspectives of people with disabilities in regard to their own sexuality. 
2. Participants will be challenged to think about ways in which supports for people with disabilities may be improved as a result of the findings of this study. 
3. Participants will be able to think more openly about sexuality and disability, and learn the importance of including people with disabilities in conversations directly impacting their lives. 
4. Participants will be able to identify further needs within the field of intellectual disability and sexuality, and discuss ways in which this research can and should be continued.
