Group Education for Individuals with Cognitive Disability (16 years & over)

Sexuality education is important for everyone, this includes those living with cognitive disability.  

These education sessions are for individuals with cognitive disability (including intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorder and acquired brain injury) over 16 years old, around sex, bodies and relationships. During the 1.5 hour sessions we will talk about, and do some activities around sex, bodies and relationships.
