Intellectual Disability and Problems in Sexual Behaviour
Intellectual Disability and Problems in Sexual Behavior
Assessment, Treatment, and Promotion of Healthy Sexuality
By Robin Wilson and Michele Burns
Working with anyone who engages in sexually inappropriate and/or offending behavior is challenging. When the individual has an intellectual disability, the challenge not only increases, it is altered. The goal of this guidebook is to provide the essential knowledge, tools, and perspective necessary for anyone choosing to work with this population. Whether you are a family member, direct care staff, probation/parole officer or a professional creating service plans or providing ongoing support, this manual will help increase your comfort and your understanding of the unique issues of this population. (Originally published by NEARI Press.)
Wilson and Burns have created a resource book which… is easy to read, well organized and, ultimately, very accessible. They ask, and answer, all the right questions.

Would this workbook be appropriate for young adults with higher-functioning autism and low average IQ? Or is it applicable only to Intellectually Disabled?
Thank you for your inquiry. I sent you an email reply, but I’ll reiterate it here:
I want to make it clear that this is not a workbook. It is a guide for clinicians working with intellectually disabled clients. However, as a guidebook it is applicable to the two populations you asked about.
