Session Dates

Monday November 14, 2022 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM - Webinar


Students with low incidences are often left out of the conversation about sexuality, almost as if they are incapable of having thoughts, feelings, and needs. In reality, they, too, are sexual beings that need information and skills for making healthy decisions about sexuality. This workshop will help you become more comfortable talking about this sensitive topic by discussing what needs to be taught when and how to help people with developmental disabilities have safe-satisfying relationships.

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify our own values and attitudes regarding sexuality and people with developmental disabilities.
  • Apply activities and ways to communicate about sexuality with people with developmental disabilities.
  • Describe Human Sexual Development.


Target Audience

Teachers, administrators, speech language pathologists, related service providers, consultants, training and consulting staff, paraprofessionals, family members Reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate individuals who have special needs as addressed by the Americans with Disabilities Act and who need assistance at this event.
