Normal Behaviour

Examples of normal sexual behaviour 

  • Developmentally expected
  • Socially acceptable
  • Consensual, mutual, reciprocal
  • Shared decision making

If behaviours are identified as inappropriate, usually some education is all that is needed to ensure a child is aware of the concerns and what is expected of them instead. Click here for some useful resources.

However, if behaviour is identified as problematic, abusive or harmful a more specialist assessment will be needed to identify the correct support and intervention for everyone involved.
