Relationships and Sexuality education is important for everyone, including those living with cognitive disability.

These education sessions are for young people with cognitive disability (including Intellectual Disability, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Acquired Brain Injury) between 12 -16 years old and their parent/carer.

The session is aimed at the young person and provides parents and carers the opportunity to engage in conversations and activities with their child around friendships, crushes and relationships.

All participants will have an opportunity to ask questions of a disability and community educator and network with other young people and parents and carers in a supportive environment.

Learning Intentions

Participants will:

  • Revise knowledge of puberty and hygiene
  • Identify different types of relationships
