Description: Sexuality is a natural part life for all people. However, people with developmental disabilities, family members, and professionals often feel unprepared to discuss this subject with each other.

Our presenters will discuss common misperceptions and myths people have about people with I/DD and sexuality; what a healthy, relationship looks like and how you can help support people to have healthy relationships; and how to prevent abusive relationships or leave bad relationships. Our presenters will also discuss ways you can start discussing this subject with people with disabilities in your life.
