TARSHI’s Corner – August 2014

TARSHI’s work on Disability and Sexuality

With the vision that all people have a right to a self-affirming and enjoyable sexuality, TARSHI has been involved with conducting consultations and workshops with parents and care-providers of young people with intellectual and multiple disabilities to address challenges and develop strategies to deal with sexuality related concerns since 2002.

TARSHI published a working paper on ‘Sexuality and Disability in the Indian Context’ to present an overview of the current scenario in India vis a vis sexuality and disability. This working paper is a collation of information and resources based on interviews with people with disabilities and with their parents, teachers, and other care providers.

TARSHI also developed a DVD – ‘TARSHI Talks’, which is a ‘talking book’ with reliable and accurate information on sexuality and relationships presented in a matter-of-fact, friendly and non-judgmental way especially developed for people with visual and print disabilities.
