For the past couple of days I have been trawling the internet looking for videos to support sexuality and relationship education for children with special needs. Something clear, straightforward and child friendly and preferrably free. No confusing talking condoms or scary graphics. Unfortunately, I bring you nothing useful.
I have had to trawl through some pretty horrific sights, and these are the only ones I found to be even vaguely suitable:
1. My Body Belongs to Me (With a puppet, not ideal as it is a conceptual barrier. Also no visuals).
2. My Body is My Body song (Which I quite like but again it doesn’t actually contain supporting visuals).
3. My Body Belongs to Me: An Aimated Short Film (Which is almost right but includes a very specific scenario of an uncle’s friend touching him which I don’t care for, especially as abuse so often happens with a trusted person. Also it is a bit wordy).
However, I did manage to have a few laughs along the way. So to make up for the lack of good resources in this post, and just for fun on a cold December day, here are a couple of quite hilarious in different ways sex education vidoes from days of yore:
Please don’t ever show this Mario Brothers video to a child with autism! Those are some scary sperm.
If anyone knows any suitable videos that they’d recommend, please do let me know.
