Sexuality, Puberty, and Autism: Practical Strategies for Common Concerns


Join POAC for a full day conference on sexuality and autism. The information in this session is intended to be a practical primmer on dealing with adolescence and beyond.

Specifically, it will cover:

  • The challenges faced by parents and educators regarding sexuality and autism
  • Specific programs and strategies for teaching sexuality, personal safety, and relationships to individuals with ASD across the spectrum
  • How parents and educators can work together to develop and work on appropriate goals
  • Potential roadblocks and how to troubleshoot them

This conference is appropriate for parents and educators of children/students who are in and approaching adolescence. Breakfast and lunch included.
