Description:

Why do so many individuals who experience I/DD start dating or becoming sexual before we start talking to them about these issues and teaching them skill they’ll need? This class will teach you practical skills for dealing with the sexual issues and needs of the individuals you support who experience I/DD (from children to adults!). We’ll address:

  • How to cope with challenging behaviors;
  • How to support healthy sexual development and healthy relationships;
  • And, how to proactively address sexuality education, sexual expression and the drive for inclusion.
