Description:

In this training you will learn how to better understand and communicate with people who experience I/DD and identify as LGBTQ (and their families and care providers). We will explore terms and definitions, relationship models, and how sexual expression differs from gender identity. We’ll also discuss how to ask inclusive questions and build supports, and how to be respectful of sexual and gender diversity while prioritizing health and safety.

Directions:

Off of I–205 and Stark or Washington. Free parking.
