Family Planning Victoria’s workforce development sessions are for professionals working with and supporting people with a cognitive disability (including Intellectual disability, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Acquired Brain Injury) in a one-to-one or group setting, around sex, bodies and relationships. 

Over 1 day, we will discuss some of the issues and barriers professionals face, to assist with having discussions with the individual you are supporting.  We will show resources and provide you with strategies for answering questions and responding to behaviours. You will have an opportunity to ask questions of our disability educators and network with other professionals.
