Abstract

Issues of sexuality and disability have traditionally been value- ladened areas. Using quantitative and qualitative methodology, attitudes toward sexual practices and relationships of individuals with disabilities were examined. Responses of teachers and administrators were differentiated on the variable of level of disability (moderate and severe disabilities). Results of the study indicated that teachers and administrators differentiated between individuals with moderate and severe disabilities on issues of sexual practices, types of relationships deemed appropriate, and the right to have children. The potential effects of trainer values on sexuality issues of individuals with disabilities are discussed.
