Family Planning NSW has created a series of fact sheets for people with intellectual disability and the people who support them. The fact sheets are easy to read and include illustrations to help people with an intellectual disability learn about sexuality and relationships. The fact sheets cover a range of topics including bodies, relationships, sex, pregnancy and reproduction, sexual health and sexual assault.

Some people with intellectual disability will be able to read the fact sheets independently while others will need the support of a family member, teacher, support worker or advocate. The fact sheets have been designed to make it easier for support people to have conversations and provide information about sexuality and relationships.

You can find these on their website: https://www.fpnsw.org.au/health-information/individuals/disability/all-about-sex
