Message from Leslie Walker-Hirsch, IMEd., FAAIDD
Welcome to my website.
If you have arrived here you are probably looking
for information or services related to social development and sexuality
among teens and adults with significant intellectual or learning
disabilities. Perhaps you are the parent of a preteen who receives
special educational services. Perhaps you are the sister or brother
of an adult with an intellectual disability who has never been well
educated about his or her sexual rights and responsibilities. Perhaps
you are a college or graduate student who will be teaching in a
resource room of a high school that does not address sexuality education
for the students you will see daily. Whoever you are, I am glad
you found this site.
For more than 25 years I have been assisting teens
and adults with intellectual disabilities and the families, schools,
agencies, state governments, law enforcement, and courts that support
them, to untangle the confusing web of facts, fears myths, laws
and unique learning strategies that surround social development
and responsible expression of sexuality in our culture for individuals
with intellectual disabilities and unique learning styles.

Making good decisions about sexuality is a critical part of adulthood, but sometimes people with intellectual disabilities don't get the support or education they need to navigate this complex aspect of life.
