Support for children aged 0-25 with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Relationships and sexuality

Relationships are an important part of everyone’s life but it can be difficult to talk about. People with a learning disability or special needs have the same rights as anyone else to express their sexuality and have personal and sexual relationships if they want to.

As young people mature they may find that they are attracted to people of the same sex, or, people of the opposite sex to their own, this is normal.

The information and links on this page will help young people, and adults, understand about the different types of relationships that they, and others may have.
