Sexuality and Disabilities | Education and the Circles Approach

 Sexuality and Disabilities | When to Start Education

Laurie Singer, Behavioral Analyst, M.S., LMFT, presents a workshop at the Center 4 Special Needs “ABCs and XYZs of Special Needs” conference.

This presentation provides an overview of the challenges parents face when their children reach puberty, reviews the many different ways in which individuals with special needs express themselves upon reaching puberty, and explains the importance of sexual education in keeping children safe. The session details the “Circles” approach to teaching sexual boundaries, developed by M. Champagne and L. Walker-Hirsch.
