Sexuality and the Developmentally Disabled

The developmentally disabled are a segment of the population which is too often forgotten. This is due to a variety of cultural norms, biases and misconceptions. This paper will examine the history and culture of the developmentally disabled as well as provide an adapted sexuality knowledge assessment to be used with this population for health professionals to get a deeper understanding of an individual’s beliefs and attitudes regarding sexuality.
