Webinar:Let’s Talk About Sex: Discussing the Topics of Sex, Protection, and/or Sexuality from Three Unique Viewpoints

Join Us for the Autism NOW Webinar on May 15th!

Due to cultural taboos, sexuality is often a difficult topic of discussion for many people, especially individuals with developmental disabilities and their family members. Siblings of people with developmental disabilities can offer a unique pathway to provide important peer support and information on this topic. Register to learn more!

Time: Tuesday, May 15, 2012, from 2:00 to 3:00 PM EST

For this webinar, we have gathered a panel of individuals from three different perspectives: a sibling of a person with developmental disability, an advocate with a developmental disability, and a professional in the disability field. Listen in as they tackle the topic of sexuality, protection and modes to support people with developmental disabilities with relationships!

Speakers:

Regina Sullivan (Sibling Advocate)

Bethany Stevens (Sex Expert)

Ryan Mercer (Developmental Disability Advocate)
