Puberty as a life transition: understanding and supporting young people with additional support needs

Beth Hannah, Fiona Dyer (Editor)

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Onset of puberty marks the passage from childhood to adolescence and acquiring skills to carry out adult roles. Puberty is transitional period between childhood and adulthood. The majority of children with additional support needs will experience puberty at the same time and rate as their peers. However, there is a lack of research into how men and women with disabilities experience sexuality and sexual identity and, in particular, the views and experiences of young people.
