    Satisfaction of sexual needs is an important area in the life of every person, even those with moderate intellectual disability, even though it is frequently neglected and/or obstructed. These people sexually mature according to the same laws as other people. Peculiarities are shown at the area of psychosocial aspect of sexual development. Therefore, it is important that these people have sex education on time and systematically. The purpose of the master's thesis has been to form structural program of sex education for the participants with moderate intellectual disability based on their pre-knowledge and to check its efficiency. Therefore, an evaluation multiple study has been executed with the stress on evaluation of efficiency of the stated program, based on data, gained by the pre-test, which controlled the pre-knowledge of the participants about sexuality. There have been 10 participants/adolescents with moderate intellectual disability, aged 14 to 21, included in the research. Their knowledge has been checked with the test about sexuality, which has been prepared for the purpose of the research twice: before and after the program. With such a small sample and diversity of adolescents with moderate intellectual disability, it is difficult to generate. However, we can conclude (because of the positive change in the level of participants' knowledge about sexuality) that the program about the knowledge from the anatomic-physiologic basics of sexuality, care for healthy and safe sexuality, and social-emotional aspects of sexuality is efficient at least on the chosen sample.
