Talking With Your Kids About Sexuality

Workshop C

Sexuality is an uncomfortable topic for many parents. Utilizing resources from Katherine McLaughlin’s “Sexuality Education for People with Developmental Disabilities: Parent Workshop Curriculum” this workshop is intended to help families look at why it’s so difficult to talk about sexuality, provide practice examples and tips for talking to their children, and identify important messages that they want to share with their children about sexuality.
