National Taiwan Normal University Special Education Center
As human beings, individuals with intellectual disabilities have the same needs of sexuality, intimacy and relationships as people without disabilities. However, they always learn that they are disabled before learning to perceive themselves as sexual people. The professionals know little about the sexuality of people with intellectual disabilities. Which neglect results in their sexual lives remain restricted. On the other hand, the social attitudes of asexual were internalized as their briefs. Though the relation of inter-influence between sexuality and disability is complicated, they are not mutually exclusive. How staff think and deal with the issue is affected by the factors of categories, age, gender, races or the society systems of their country. In order to explore the historical development of sexual issue of people with intellectual disabilities, the literature of social movement, human right convention, law enactment, and crucial conferences, within a century, are reviewed in the article.
