Summary: "Adolescence can be a difficult and confusing time for young people. This can be even more difficult for a young person with a disability who may learn in different ways or at a slower rate than their peers. Many parents worry about their child's ability to experience relationships safely without exploitation. However, young people with disabilities will experience the same hormonal changes as other teenagers. It is helpful to encourage your child's developing sexuality so that it is explored in a safe and supportive environment. As a parent or carer, how you relate to your child's sexuality and how you respond to their sexual behaviours will have a strong influence on the sexual health and development of your child. You can help your child establish healthy relationships by providing them with information that they understand, supporting them to make their own decisions and talking to them about their feelings. This resource has been developed as a guide to help parents and carers start talking to their child about relationships, sexual health and personal safety." - INTRODUCTION

I can't decide if I like this or not. It is an odd combination of info for families and education for people with disability. I actually think most of the DVD is too complex to use direct with people with disability. I'd still probably use it as a template for adapting rather than an as-is resource.
