I decided the best thing was to see what professionals were advising parents and caregivers of children with PIMD in a similar circumstance of recognizing their children's sexual awakening, and then to act on the advice given.
After reading and studying the advice given by professionals regarding the sexuality of persons with PIMD, it left me bewildered and perplexed and, in a sense, in a "no man's land.
Thirdly, I felt I had a duty and responsibility not only to my child, but to all the other children with PIMD, whose sexuality and sexual expression was not recognised.
It is worth mentioning that there are a few articles by professionals concerning persons with PIMD who had no capacity to understand or provide consent but this was mainly in the context of sexual abuse by parents, caregivers, friends or strangers.
The reason why almost all parents and caregivers ignore or fail to recognise the sexuality of children with PIMD is complex and varied but some of the main reasons are:
Parents and caregivers are so overwhelmed by the basic daily care of children with PIMD that they cannot even consider the sexuality of their profoundly disabled and dependent child.
