Sexuality Resource Center for Parents: Tools, Tips, and Tricks for Teaching Children about Human Sexuality

Additional Resources

(For Parents of Children with Physical Disabilities)

The following resources are specific to physical disabilities and sexuality. We also encourage you to take a thorough look at the additional resources that we collected for parents of children with typical development by clicking here.

Note: In addition to resources for parents, you will also find that we have included resources for children here. Before you pass along any of these resources to your child, we strongly suggest that you check them out first. We may think that a particular website or book is a great resource for children, but that doesn't mean you have to agree. Choose materials that reflect your values and the messages you want your child to receive.
