Sexuality is a key part of human nature. People with cognitive disability (including those with Autism Spectrum Disorder) experience the same range of sexual thoughts, attitudes, feelings, desires, fantasies and activities as anyone else. To understand and enjoy sexuality, everyone needs appropriate information and support from as early as possible.

This education session is designed for professionals who support individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and want to develop skills on the topics related to reproductive and sexual health and relationships.

  • explore the emergence of sexuality in someone with ASD and factors that may affect this
