the book: Sexuality: Your Sons and Daughters with Intellectual Disabilities (Schwier & Hingsburger) In this book, readers will learn how to interact with their children in a way that increases self-esteem, encourages appropriate behavior, empowers them to recognize and respond to abuse, and enables them to develop positive lifelong relationships.
