Sexuality and Healthy Relationships

Extend-A-Family offers a Sexuality Workshop with a focus on healthy relationships twice a year.

Sexuality Workshop Series

The workshops are geared towards children/youth with developmental disabilities from 11 to 15 years of age.  It is a five-week group session, offered once each week, that is designed to provide parents and their children with practical learning opportunities.  Included in the workshop are discussions about feelings, relationships and sexuality.  Families will have an opportunity to talk about this important subject as well as network with other families who are interested in supporting their children in this important aspect of learning.

Please note: each young person attending the workshop MUST be accompanied by a family member who can help reinforce the information at home.
