The human body experiences biological, social and emotional changes regardless of disability or ability. Sexual awareness is normal. Sexual feelings are normal. Talking about sex, teaching about sex, and making informed decisions about sex are difficult topics for parents and educators.  Please join us as we discuss:

  • Who are Adolescents?
  • Challenges in Puberty
  • Multi-Dimensional Changes
  • Issues of Gender and Adolescence
  • Young Girls and Menstruation
  • Young Boys and Body Changes
  • Sexuality

This presentation is designed for parents, educators, and other professionals working with youth, specifically children 11 and under, on the Autism Spectrum.

No Cost to Attend.
