Developmental Disability and Sexuality 101Elevatus Training
This six-module, online course offers you a proven, nuts-and-bolts approach to discussing sexuality and responding to behaviors.
When it comes to discussions about sexuality, people with disabilities are often excluded; almost as if they’re incapable of having sexual thoughts, feelings and needs. In reality, they too are sexual beings who need information and skills to make healthy decisions about sexuality and relationships. If you’re like many professionals who work with people with developmental disabilities, you know sexuality issues need to be addressed, but you may not have the knowledge, skills and confidence to do so. But don’t worry. We’ve got your back. Like so many other professionals who’ve completed this course, you’ll come away feeling more skillful, comfortable and confident when discussing sexuality with the people you serve.
