Susan M. Wilczynski, Ph.D., BCBA-D Presented at the 2019 Michigan Autism Conference
Abstract: This workshop is designed to provide an overview of sexuality education as it is uniquely addressed to meet the needs of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The workshop will begin with an overview of topics that need to be included in comprehensive sexuality education (e.g., biological aspects of sexuality, sexual safety, public masturbation, sexuality orientation and gender identity, etc.). Curricula that may be useful to individuals seeking to acquire expertise in sexuality education will be discussed. Resources for acquiring expertise in sexuality education will be provided. Attendees can expect to leave with knowledge regarding the topic of sexuality education but should not anticipate acquiring the expertise needed to provide sexuality education to individuals with ASD at the conclusion of the workshop.
