I’ll have to check that out. I do case management for people with intellectual abilities. Generally I’ve found with those with moderate or lower functioning, sexuality doesn’t often come into play except for self pleasure in some.  I have dealt with or heard about sexuality issues a few times with higher functioning individuals.
