In tune with the Social Model of Disability, Dr Tom Shakespeare summarises his ideal changes in society, that disabled individuals:

• be treated as adults, and with dignity
• have knowledge
• be sexual and be allowed the freedom to take risks
• not to be at the mercy of care givers
• live free from sexual abuse
Lorna Couldrick MSc, DipCOT, CertEd, MBACP (SnrAccred) has developed a new model to replace PLISSIT for helping professionals and disabled people feel more comfortable about discussing sexual problems. Her model was launched at the SHADA conference in November.
