Three-Day Certificate Training
Become a Sexuality Educator and Trainer

For anyone who works with people with I/DD and wants to lead
sexuality education classes, staff training or parent workshops.

Increase Your Skill and Comfort Level When Addressing
Sexuality With People With I/DD

When it comes to talking about sexuality, people with disabilities are often excluded, almost as if they are 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 and schools who work with people with developmental disabilities know that sexuality issues need to be addressed, they don’t necessarily feel comfortable or competent enough to do so. This training will give you the curriculum, tools, and skills to teach sexuality education classes and lead staff/parent training.

This 3-day certificate training is for anyone who works with people with I/DD and wants to lead sexuality education classes, staff training, or parent workshops.

As a result of this training, you will be able to:

  • Describe how to help people with disabilities become sexual self-advocates
  • Identify our own values and attitudes and how those impact your ability and effectiveness in teaching this topic
  • Explain what makes it difficult for staff and parents to talk about sexuality with consumers and discuss solutions to those barriers
  • List ways to teach this topic with other agency staff, parents, and people with disabilities
  • Demonstrate effective training techniques to use with staff, parents, and people with disabilities

Don’t miss this opportunity to get the training and support you need to make a difference in the lives of people with developmental disabilities.

As someone who mostly hasn’t worked with this population, it was really helpful hearing examples of real life situations and hearing the messages that self-advocates want other folks to hear. I learned so much about best practices, arguments for teaching sex-ed to people with I/DD, and common barriers to sexual autonomy for this population.
