Abstract [en]

Introduction

There is limited knowledge about how young people with intellectual disability (ID) can be facilitated in their process of deciding about parenthood in future. This study aimed to explore an intervention using the Toolkit “Children – what does it involve? and the “Real Care Baby” (RCB) simulator among pupils with ID.

Methods

Pupils (n=15) with ID participated in an intervention with 12 educational sessions and a three-day caring session with the RCB simulator. Data were collected with individual in-depth interviews. Content analysis was used.

Results

Preliminary results showed that the intervention gave knowledge and experiences, which promoted insights in parenthood among these pupils. They described both basic and more specific needs of the child and the complexity of caring a child and being a responsible parent. Parent´s relationship was emphasised as well as to be an autonomously adult. Final results are pending.

Implications

By receiving adapted knowledge and experiences, pupils with ID became more suited to make informed decisions about parenthood in future.
