Webinar: Lunch & Learn: Understanding Sexuality in Youth with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
Tuesday, May 16, 2017 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Description: Sexual education encompasses many aspects of life, such as anatomy, health, personal hygiene, reproduction, relationships, and the expression of love. Sex education is needed by all human beings including youth with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Excluding youth with intellectual and developmental disabilities from this important conversation can leave this population vulnerable to abuse. This webinar will discuss why educating youth with intellectual and developmental disabilities is so important, barriers families face in discussing sexuality, and solutions to those barriers.
