Sexual education for young adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities is extremely important.
Individuals with intellectual disabilities experience difficulty in interpreting behavioural cues within their social environments. People with intellectual disabilities are overrepresented as both victims and perpetrators of sexual offences Hogg et al. One of the most significant factors in the sexual victimization of individuals with intellectual disabilities is their knowledge deficit regarding acceptable behaviour.
