All people deserve access to medically accurate and developmentally appropriate information related to their sexuality and sexual health. Yet often, individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) are not included in sex education. Training participants will have an opportunity to identify and examine values, practice intentional language, work on concrete skills for adapting lesson plans, share challenges and successes, and learn best practices for implementing Universal Design for Learning (UDL) through lecture, peer-to-peer conversation, modeling, and skill-building activities. This full-day, interactive training was informed by a team of multi-disciplinary experts and a focus-group of youth self-advocates. We hope you can join us for this brand-new training intended for educators, service providers, and anyone who is working directly with individuals with IDD.
Please note: The Training Hub includes both in-person and online professional trainings. During the time of COVID-19, we know the demand for virtual training has greatly increased, and many of our members are quickly adapting to get you the training you need. If you see a training you are interested in and it isn’t listed as virtual, please reach out directly to any of our members to find out what is possible!
