SEXUALITY, HEALTH and HYGIENE presented by Barbara Laird
Please note an earlier start time for this presentation

This workshop  will address an area we often neglect, ignore, are fearful of or delay  until there is an urgent necessity.
The session will focus on sexuality, puberty, boundaries, relationships, hygiene and health. The strategies and information is relevant for all age levels and will enable parents and professionals to be proactive with the goal of supporting individuals with developmental disabilities to learn the skills to be independent, appropriate and safe.
Learning Objectives:

  • Take away fear around dealing with these sensitive issues, and help understanding of how important it is to address them throughout the lifespan
  •  Enable and encourage parents and professionals to be proactive in dealing with these issues, ideally from a very early age and over the lifetime
  • Share educational strategies that will enable parents and professionals to teach in ways that will help with understanding and remembering so that individuals will be independent and safe.

 

As a support group, parents get together on a monthly basis to chat, discuss, connect, and generally support one another with knowledge and ideas to help us through certain challenges of raising a child with special needs.

Join us for a casual evening and meet other parents from our community. You are welcome to check out our Lending Library for any resources you may find helpful and interesting.

Refreshments will be served.

Bookings no longer allowed on this date.
