Healthy Sexpectations Mini-series Recordings
It's important to insure that students with developmental disabilities receive sexuality education. However we have heard that due to discomfort with the topic and lack of educational materials for these students this group does not receive this much needed information. This series will establish why sexuality education is important for students with developmental disabilities and provide resources and teaching strategies.
Current Product Offerings:
Making the Case for Sexuality Education for Youth with Developmental Disabilities (Recording)|
People with developmental disabilities are at greater risk for sexual abuse, unintended pregnancy and STDs. In addition, their intimacy needs are often overlooked, which hinders their opportunities for love and affection. People with developmental disabilities need sexuality education that teaches them about their bodies, setting boundaries with others and how to appropriately meet their human need for intimacy. This webinar will focus on creating a solid foundation for sexuality education in the classroom for people with developmental disabilities. It will also introduce a much needed "call to action" for sexuality educators to work with disability providers in the creation and implementation of written sexuality policies.
Sexuality Education for Youth with Asperger's Syndrome (Recording)|
People with Asperger's Syndrome (AS) experience unique obstacles to their sexual development: lack of sociosexual knowledge, sexual segregation, policy inconsistencies and few opportunities for intimacy. This webinar will explore the dynamics and importance of sexuality education for persons with AS and identify resources, educational tools and practical guidelines for encouraging healthy sexuality. Special emphasis will be given to social stories and the 5-point scale.
