Working with groups of children, young people and adults with disabilities

People with learning disabilities have a right to information about sexuality. Children and young people have a right to effective, relevant and accessible sex and relationship education. Image in Action trainers lead weekly sessions with groups in schools, colleges, adult services, in housing associations, and in partnership with voluntary sector organisations. In some schools we run a two hour workshop every week for a year. In a college working with young people with moderate learning disabilities we may lead weekly workshops for a term. Our trainers work closely with staff to plan and evaluate the work and often train staff to take on the programme at the end of the project.
The Topics  
The Topics

These depend entirely on the needs and abilities of the group: from growing up, hygiene and puberty for younger children to sexual relationships, contraception, safer sex for young adults and e-safety.
  The Methods
The Methods

These are group and circle based. Games and practical activities, visual resources and props make learning memorable and fun.
So we use:

Active learning methods
  • Group work
  • Innovative and creative drama techniques
  • Story and character work
  • Role play
  • Props and visual resources


The Safeguards
  • We work with the needs of the group
  • We respect confidentiality
  • We evaluate effectively
  • We respect different cultural and religious beliefs
  • We take care to work within establishment policies
