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.

Learning intentions

Participants will:

  • explore the emergence of sexuality and factors that may affect this
  • examine legislation that supports all people to access sexual and reproductive education, information and health care, including laws and duty of care
  • identify ways to engage in discussions around sex, bodies and relationships in age- and developmentally appropriate ways
  • develop strategies for answering questions and responding to behaviours with confidence
  • acquire specialist information/activities/resources to support participants in their workplace
  • participate in a Q&A with an experienced disability and community educator.
