Puberty, sex and sexuality challenge many of us as we grow up, and then again as we parent our own children. Supporting a young person through puberty who has a diagnosis of intellectual disability or autism may add layers of complexity associated, for example, with learning and communication, increased vulnerability, the law and ethics. The authors of this book combine enormous wisdom with deep compassion and insight to deliver an uncompromising yet tactful and sensitively written guide presented in plain terms that almost everyone will understand.
Ioannis Voskopoulos and Labrini Ioannou, Psychologists
We strongly recommend this book. Perfectly written and structured, it provides answers to important questions on real life issues that every parent, carer or practitioner might face today or in the future. A great read and an important addition to sex education literature.
Joanne Morris, parent
As a parent of a teenage boy with an intellectual disability, this book is a must read. It will be my go-to guide for many years to come. With refreshing 'frankness', the book answers questions that parents and carers may have during their child's journey through adolescence.If you need any guidance along your journey, this is the book for you - a powerful dose of encouragement and motivation to 'keep going'.
