Adam (a teenage boy with severe learning difficulties) is with a couple of friends getting dressed in the changing room at his local sports centre. He gets an erection and starts touching himself. His friends are shocked. A question mark appears. The video replays. When Adam starts to touch himself during the replay a Widgit 'stop' symbol appears. At home, sitting on the sofa in the front room with his father and sister, he notices he's got another erection. He wonders what he should do. A question mark appears. Adam leaves the room and goes upstairs to his bedroom.
This clip could be used to support PSHE learning in relation to puberty, masturbation and inappropriate public behaviour. It illustrates the need to take into consideration other people's feelings and the need for privacy in relation to intimate behaviour. The widgit symbols can be used as pause-points by teachers to highlight key issues for discussion.
