Signs for Sexuality Relationships Education for children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN)
New ebook publication available from

This mobile resource is designed to support those living and working with children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN) by providing an introductory sign vocabulary for the topic of sexual relationships education which includes growing up, understanding public and private body parts, actions, feelings and behaviours, forming friendships and relationships, staying safe and sexual orientation.

The signs are British Sign Language (BSL) based and include regional BSL alternatives appropriate for a wide range of deaf and hearing sign language users. Some signs have many variations and only the most commonly used ones are included.

Signs are arranged in topics followed by a separate alphabetical glossary with written descriptions alongside each sign. Also included are the Basic Handshape Key and Fingerspelling Alphabet. The contents are based on work to support sexual relationships education and Down syndrome developed by Dr Wendy Uttley of the Down Syndrome Training and Support Service Ltd. The signs cover the topics of Growing Up - Feelings - Public and Private - Personal Hygiene  Greetings - Friendships and Relationships - Sexual Orientation  Help, Assertiveness and Safe-guarding.
