Comparison report

When the research findings from the six countries (Germany, Hungary, Finland, Lithuania, the Netherlands and the UK) were reviewed it quickly became apparent that there are many similarities about the situation of adults with learning/intellectual disabilities in each country. When collecting data, the researchers recorded information on the same template, which made it easier to draw comparisons between different countries. Interview data from each country illustrated that people hold very varied opinions about sex education for adults with learning/intellectual disabilities: people in the same country, or even in the same area, held different strong opinions about people with learning/intellectual disabilities having relationships or becoming parents. The quantity and quality of sex education taking place also differs from country to country. However one consistent point made was that sex education is more likely to happen as a reaction to a problem, not as a standard procedure available to everyone.
