Session Description:

People with developmental disabilities are often left out of the conversation about sexuality and relationships, 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. As someone who works in a competitive integrated employment setting or a worksite, you see the need to address relationships and sexuality on a one on one basis with people with I/DD who are employees. We will explore what are the topics and main points to teach and examine techniques for helping people with I/DD to have healthy work relationships.
