About the Topic

When disability and sexuality intersect, attitudes often collide. This workshop begins by looking at the various "realizations" that people need to have when working with those who have an intellectual disability who wish to express their sexual/relationship needs. Also, a fun look at myths and mythologies of sexuality and disability will be explored.
