Let’s Talk About Sex: Sexual Health and Wellness Training

July 20 @ 6:00 pm July 21 @ 8:00 pm

THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR VIRGINIA PARENTS , GUARDIANS, FAMILY MEMBERS OF YOUTH WITH DISABILITES. THERE WILL BE FUTURE WORKSHOPS FOR PROFESSIONALS.

THIS TRAINING HAS 2 SESSIONS. REGISTRANTS SHOULD PLAN TO ATTEND BOTH THE JULY 20th AND JULY 21st SESSIONS.

If you find it uncomfortable to talk with your child about sexuality and puberty, you’re not alone. Most parents do. However, being comfortable talking about this with your child is important, as these conversations are critical to your child’s health and safety. They help your child with a disability develop self-care skills, cultivate social skills, gain an understanding of appropriate behaviors, increase personal safety, and work toward becoming a more independent adult.

You know your children best and determine when and what information your child needs regarding sexual health. This training will provide information and practical tools and strategies you can use along your child’s journey to adulthood.
