Sexual Lives and Respectful Relationships (SL&RR) developed by Deakin University is a community based model of sexuality education, information and activity that brings people with an intellectual disability together with professionals from community organisations.
The four-session program is run by Peer Educators (people with an intellectual disability who have been trained to run the program) and Program Partners (WHISE and South Eastern Centre Against Sexual Assault) have been trained to run the program).
What are the program aims?
- Enable people with intellectual disability to discuss and learn about healthy, safe and respectful relationships
- To bring people together to talk about their rights and share ways to have sexual lives of their choosing
- To improve sexual and reproductive health outcomes for people with intellectual disabilities
Who should attend?
The training is for anyone with an intellectual disability who wants to talk about and share ideas about having respectful relationships in their lives.
