Webinar: Sexuality Education and People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD)
Thursday, March 28, 10-11 am
People with IDD have historically been left out of the sexuality education conversation. When they are included, the information is limited and censored. What are some of the myths associated with sexuality and IDD? Why do they persist? What can we do to move the conversation forward and be advocates?
Join us for a free webinar on Thursday, March 28, 10 am for the answers to these questions and more!
