Library Thursdays: Sex and relationships booklets, Plus resources for children on Coeliac Disease

CHANGE is an organisation led by people with disabilities in the UK who seek equal rights for people with intellectual disabilities (called learning disabilities in the UK). They have produced a series of books for people with intellectual disabilities on sex and relationships. Titles include: Friendships and relationships, Sex and masturbation, Safe sex and contraception, Lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans and Sexual abuse. The books are written by people with intellectual disabilities using easy language and pictures to support discussion of these topics.
These books are all available in the library to borrow.

Also new in this week following on from last week's blog are:
Cassie Croc has coeliac disease by Anthea Allen (who wrote this when she was 11, a year after she was diagnosed with coeliac disease), tells the story of Cassie Croc's diagnosis and treatment of coeliac disease.
Amy can't eat gluten by Judy Young is another book for children to help them and others understand coeliac disease. It is in black and white and includes puzzles and recipes.

If you'd like to borrow any of the above resources or anything else, please email or call.
