In order for an adult to engage in sexual activity with another adult, legally each person must be able to provide informed consent. Being able to provide informed consent is normally automatic based upon attaining a legal age as mandated in each state. However, if a person has an intellectual/developmental disability, the courts will defer to professionals in our field to make that determination. Sexual consent determinations can only be done with people who are the age of legal consent or older (in New York State the legal age is 17).
