Intellectual disabilities and sexuality: people with intellectual disabilities and the parenting role. A literature study.

Intellectual disabilities and sexuality: people with intellectual disabilities and the parenting role. A literature study.

Children also have their own rights described in the UN Convention of 1986. The results of the study show that children of people with intellectual disabilities are often neglected and that they come under child welfare supervision. The recommendation is a two-part model that deals with the prevention of pregnancy and how various venues can work together to provide parents with intellectual disabilities and their children the best possible assistance. The recommended assistance includes sexual education programs and behavioral training programs.
