Relationships, Sexual Health and Parenthood Resources for Young People with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Education ScotlandWelcome to the relationships, sexual health and parenthood education resource. The resource is based on the principles of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child www.unicef.org/crc/ . This internationally recognized document spells out the basic human rights that children everywhere – without discrimination – have: the right to survival; to develop to the fullest; to protection from harmful influences, abuse and exploitation and to participate fully in family, cultural and social life.

This pack provides a crucial step towards achieving these rights by ensuring that young people with autism spectrum disorder are provided with accurate and relevant information and have the opportunity to develop the skills and competencies required to have happy, safe and fulfilling relationships.

This resource aims to enable staff working with young people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to deliver a sexual health and relationships education programme which best meets the needs of the young people. It is intended that the programme will promote young people’s understanding and develop their knowledge of sexual heath and relationships in a way that is meaningful to them.

The resource is designed as an online resource to be used by staff working with young people with ASD in different settings such as mainstream secondary schools and youth work. The activities included in the pack have been designed specifically for this purpose and are intended to be informative, interactive and straightforward to deliver and are based on evidence and feedback from practitioners.
