6 Summary of Session 7

Relationships matter to people with learning disabilities. Good relationships help people to feel valued, connected, happy and healthy. People with learning disabilities sometimes need extra support to enable them to develop and keep good relationships. They may also need support to help them to avoid relationships that are harmful.

In this session you explored:

  • how people with learning disabilities can be involved in caring relationships
  • the importance of friendship for people with learning disabilities
  • barriers to people with learning disabilities developing romantic and sexual relationships
  • how people can be supported to avoid abusive relationships.

In the next and final session of this course, you will consider what is needed to help more people with learning disabilities feel like they belong in society.
