Sexuality & ASD Workshop

Sep 29th

Event Details

Do you have questions about your child or teen with ASD’s sexual development? Does your child or teen engage in “inappropriate sexual behaviour”? Would you like to learn how to teach social boundaries to your child or teen with ASD? This workshop is designed for parents of children 8 to 17 years old. As part of this workshop we will discuss typical sexual development, how characteristics of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can impact sexuality, specific concerns regarding ‘sexualized’ behaviours, strategies for intervening with inappropriate or high-risk sexual behaviour, and resources for additional support.
