Friendships and relationships

Friendships and relationships are a core part of life for everyone - including people with a learning disability.

Making friends

One of the main concerns for any parent is that their child will be able to make friends and get fully involved in activities both inside and outside of school.

Sex and relationships

For many parents, talking to their son or daughter about sex and relationships can be difficult, and even embarrassing.

Marriage and starting a family

Someone with a learning disability who has met someone they care about, or been involved in a long-term relationship, may want to consider getting married and having a family at some stage in their life.
