Exploring Experience of Romantic Relationships and Sexuality Education in Young People

Hi Everyone!

Please take part in this very important survey and help to understand whether the current sex education is appropriate (or not) for neurodivergent youth.

What support (if any) caregivers and educators would like to receive to discuss sexual topics more effectively with these young people.

Knowing this, we may make the appropriate recommendations for the development of appropriate sex education for neurodivergent youth!

Your voices are vital!

The aim is to better understand the experience of romantic relationships in young people, as well as what type of sex education is provided for young people and whether this sex education is appropriate for autistic individuals or individuals with attention/deficit-hyperactivity condition or with a dual diagnosis (ASD co-occurring with ADHD). And how the current sex education could be improved (if required) to be more appropriate for neurodivergent young people.

YOU MAY QUALIFY IF:

  • You are between 18-25 years old and are a neurotypical young adult (which means you are not diagnosed with any neurodevelopmental condition) or you have a diagnosis of ASD or ADHD, or ASD co-occurring with ADHD.
  • You are a caregiver or of an individual between 13-25 years old who is a neurotypical person (which means they are not diagnosed with any neurodevelopmental condition) or they have a diagnosis of ASD or ADHD, or ASD co-occurring with ADHD.
  • You are an educational professional (teacher, learning support, learning mentor, pastoral role, teaching assistant etc.) of individuals between 13-25 years old who are neurotypical (which means they are not diagnosed with any neurodevelopmental condition) or have a diagnosis of ASD or ADHD, or ASD co-occurring with ADHD.
