Abstract

Many parents with children with Autism have difficulty seeing their children as sexual beings. They often don’t know how to provide the needed supports for their children to have a healthy sexual life. This presentation will address parental issues in regards to sexuality and autism including strategies on how to talk with your child about their changing bodies, when to have the “talk” and what to expect. Strategies for individuals needing varying supports across the spectrum will be discussed.
