Students with disabilities are often not considered when school districts and community organization provide comprehensive sex ed programming. In this session, we will explore how to build a program for youth with disabilities in your school, district or organization. Participants will learn how to identify and engage key stakeholders and use Elevatus resources to support the program design while centering the work around the youth that the program will serve.

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify sexual health program development for youth with disabilities through Design Thinking.
  • Discuss best practices to engage stakeholders and utilize Elevatus resources throughout the process.
  • Engage in skills-based practice to elevate youth voice/ perspective in program development.
