Tailored Information Sessions

If our topic specific sessions are not what you're looking for we conduct tailor made group sessions for a minimum of one hour. These are customised, age and developmentally appropriate sessions to increase the knowledge and awareness of reproductive and sexual health and relationship issues for people with cognitive disability.

Tailored education sessions can be held at a service, community space, residential unit or one of our clinic locations.
