Starting the Conversation: Talking to Your Child About Sexuality

Talking with our young and grown children about sexuality can be a difficult task.

As parents and guardians, we often worry whether talking about it gives permission and whether they can be safe from harm when they are in relationships. This workshop will help you become more comfortable discussing this topic by covering what topics to cover when and the most effective ways to talk about this sensitive topic.  
Goals:  

  • Examine barriers to talking about sexuality.  
  • Gain knowledge about sexuality and developmental disabilities.  
  • Acquire and practice skills in communicating about sexuality with our young and grown children.
