My 31yr old son has LD and Autism and lives in supported accommodation near our home. He has a fiancée who has Downs Syndrome. They appear to love each other very much and are now wanting to have a physical relationship. I’m not entirely sure that either of them fully understand what this entails both physically and emotionally but now that the issue has been raised we all need to consider it! Obviously this is a minefield of an area and needs a lot of safeguards in place to protect both of them but just wondering if anyone out there has similar experiences or advice.
We are in the early stages of discussions with Social Work and the support services where our son lives.
