For Families and Carers : Sexual Health and Puberty

As well as changes in emotions and their body, most young people with Down’s syndrome will also begin to become interested in love and relationships.

This may feel a bit daunting, but it is a normal and a natural part of growing up. Many young people with Down’s syndrome want to start a relationship, but they may need some extra support. They will need to learn what relationships mean and how they can have a happy, safe relationship.
