Personal, Social and Health Education for Young People with Learning Disabilities
through music and song
Songs by musician and registered nurse
Edwin Humphreys
The songs you can hear on this website are designed to help a person with a learning disability learn about personal, social and health education and sexual health.
The songs are appropriate for a range of ages – each song has its age-relevance.
Click on a menu item to the left to hear samples of the songs. To buy the CD and activities book for educators, please click on the Songs for Your Body title at the head of this page.
This is a sample of the full song on the CD.
HEY YOU! DO YOU WANT A POO? has been developed from the Toilet Hygiene Pack devised by a team of community nurses, the Arfon Community Team, in north Wales. The pack is a guide for people with learning disabilities to use the toilet more hygienically. It consists of a step-bystep informative guide accompanied by pictures.
The song follows the steps given in the pack. The song is aimed at people with a mild or moderate learning disability but could also be used with a person who cannot read.
