Relationships & Sexual Health Education for Students with a Disability

SHINE SA can support teachers and other workers to support students with a disability in the area of relationships and sexual health.

The 2-day workshop explores:

  • a suggested curriculum framework
  • problem-solving scenarios
  • challenges and concerns of participants
  • a range of relevant resources available through SHINE SA

The course is aimed at middle years’ teachers and support staff; however, all interested people are welcome to attend.

Participants will receive a certificate of achievement and recognition of training and development hours with reference to relevant Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.

SHINE SA has an extensive Library with free membership available to all South Australians.

Additionally the Resource Centre features a wide selection of resources for young people with learning and physical disabilities to support delivery of a comprehensive relationships and sexual health education program. All schools are able to join the Resource Centre for an annual membership fee with most resources able to be posted via the DECD courier system. For catalogues and membership information see the Resource Centre.

Friendships and dating: Information about relationships for parents, carers and young people with a disability. This booklet can be downloaded using the above link or ordered from SHINE SA. There is also a DVD format available at the Online Shop.


Once a school has made a commitment to deliver a comprehensive relationships and sexual health curriculum, SHINE SA can assist in the planning and implementation of a parent information evening.

This includes development of a program highlighting what the school is doing; SHINE SA Coordinators co-facilitating the evening with teachers; inviting parents/carers to participate in learning activities and view associated resources; package of resources including PowerPoint, and suggested take home resources for use in the future.

Our aim is to provide support in the first instance to build confidence and capacity for staff to facilitate future evenings on their own.
