Exploring Sexuality And Relationships Workshop
April 23, 2015, 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
If you are a parent or caregiver of an adolescent or adult with Aspergers, and you have struggled with providing information about sex and relationships, please join us for a free workshop that will address this topic. It is essential that information about sexuality and relationship development/maintenance is given and that it is developmentally appropriate. If this has not been addressed to date, it is key to start now. The good news is that you do not have to do it alone.
Areas that will be covered in the workshop include:
- Developmentally and age appropriate teaching of sexuality concepts
- Behavioural responses to inappropriate sexual behaviour
- Parameters of relationships
- Potential legal concerns regarding sexuality and relationships
