Sexuality Education: Ethics and Consent
Achieving sexual agency for adults with disabilities begins with developing sexual knowledge. Many young adults with disabilities are often denied sexuality
education during their youth due to misconceptions regarding their ability and interest in sexuality. This chapter from Sexuality Education for Students with Disabilities examines the ethical responsibility that families, adult service providers, and educators have to provide effective sexuality education for people with disabilities to ensure they are equipped with the knowledge to consent to a healthy sexual relationship.
