Developmental Disabilities and Sexuality:
Becoming a Sexuality Educator and Trainer

A 3-Day Certificate Training for anyone who works with people with developmental disabilities and wants to lead sexuality education classes and staff/parent trainings.

When it comes to talking about sexuality, people with disabilities are often excluded; almost as if they’re incapable of having sexual thoughts, feelings and needs. In reality, they too are sexual beings who need the information and skills for making healthy decisions about sexuality. Though agencies who work with people with developmental disabilities know that sexuality issues need to be addressed, they often don’t feel comfortable or competent enough to do so. This training will give you the curriculum, tools, and skills you need to teach sexuality education classes and lead staff/parent trainings.
