Sexuality is a key part of human nature. People with Cognitive Disability (including those with Intellectual Disability, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Acquired Brain Injury) experience the same range of sexual thoughts, attitudes, feelings, desires, fantasies and activities as anyone else. To understand and enjoy sexuality, everyone needs appropriate information and support from as early as possible.

This outreach session (at your site) is designed for professionals who support individuals with Cognitive Disability (CD) and want to develop skills on the topics related to reproductive and sexual health and relationships.

Learning intentions

Participants will:

  • explore the emergence of sexuality and factors that may affect this
  • examine values and attuites that may impact information provision
  • examine legislation that supports all people to access sexual and reproductive education, information and health care, including laws and duty of care
  • identify ways to engage in discussions around sexuality and relationships in age- and developmentally appropriate ways
  • acquire specialist information/activities/resources to support individuals with CD develop strategies for answering questions and responding to behaviours with confidence
  • have the opportunity to ask questions of an experienced disability and community educator
