healthy sexuality workshop

Supporting a young person through the complexities of "the hormone years" is challenging for all parents and caregivers. When the individual has additional support needs the challenges can seem overwhelming.

Through focus on the importance of relationships as the foundation for understanding healthy sexuality, caregivers will be guided through a process of examining the similarities and differences between typical sexual development in youth and the behaviour they are seeing from their young person. Concerns about inappropriate language and touching can be addressed and put into context. Support options such as the Circles Program, Continuum of Touch and Social Stories will be introduced. Participants will also be made aware of community resources such as the Sunny Hill Education Resource Centre library which can provide relevant support materials.
