Promoting Sexual Rights
People with disability are too often seen as inherently vulnerable, without agency in relation to sexuality and relationships, according to the convenor of a masterclass in sexuality and intellectual disability held recently at Deakin University.
The Disability and Inclusion Unit within Deakin’s School of Health and Social Development brought together leading researchers, including researchers with lived experience of intellectual disability, in a unique masterclass on sexuality and intellectual disability.
