Discussions of consent are a vital part of sexuality education, and this is no different for people with disabilities. Protection from exploitation must be balanced against the right to sexual expression, with an emphasis on building a person’s capacity to give informed consent. This online workshop will examine several models for determining sexual consent. Participants will apply consent criteria to several case studies and discuss strategies for improving a person’s consent abilities.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this 90 minute workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Evaluate different models for determining one’s capacity to give sexual consent.
  • Apply consent criteria to situations involving sexual decision-making.
  • Consider strategies for improving one’s sexual consent capacity.
