Shelby is a 34-year-old woman diagnosed with intellectual disabilities. She comes from a big family, and her mother acts as her guardian. She has been living in a group home for the last six years in a small town Southern Alberta town, and she enjoys her living arrangements. As a part of her day program, she volunteers in a hospital as a hairdresser. She attended special education class in a regular school, where she also took some sexual education classes. However, Shelby felt very uncomfortable with some of the material in the class, so her mother decided that she would no longer attend it. Later, Shelby attended other sexual education classes at her high school and in the group home where she lives, but does not recall learning about birth control. She believes that if she has sex it will definitely lead to pregnancy; this belief probably comes from her mother, who seems to be overprotective. Shelby’s story demonstrates how persons with disabilities are sometimes given false information; for example, she was told that she should not take birth control pills, as her dogs might think it is a treat and eat it. Shelby had her first sexual experience when she was 13 years old, and it was against her will. It does not seem that Shelby reported this assault. Shelby has been with her partner, who is also her first boyfriend, for two years. Her partner has Down’s syndrome, and they are not interested in sex. Shelby does not expect to marry, move in with, or have kids with her partner, and it seems that she does not have an opportunity to spend as much as time with him as she would like.
