Sexuality is a basic part of being human, and sexual development begins when we are born and continues throughout our lives.  Many family members and caregivers struggle with discussing the topic of relationships, intimacy, sexuality and safety and also with how to present the information in a way that the person with developmental disability will understand. Thus, it is necessary to empower caregivers so they can empower the people they care about. 

People with a developmental disabilities deserve to learn about their physical, emotional, and social growth as it relates to their sexual development.  They should have freedom to ask questions and be supported to learn in an environment that is non-judgmental, free of fear, shame, and exploitation. This will be an open and honest discussion about sexuality and supporting your family member or the person you support to feel safe.

Fostering Education from Home — Part II: Applying Strategies in the Real World (Wed. 10 Jun, 2020 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm)

Fostering Education from Home — Part II: Applying Strategies in the Real World  Wednesday, June 10, 2020 — 1:00 p.m.-2:30 p.m. EDT

With children out of school and at home, caregivers have been asked to assume many new roles and responsibilities. Among these is the role of teacher. Even under the best of circumstances, youth who have experienced foster care often have difficulty navigating the demands of school. Now, as schools move into remote learning mode, caregivers must find ways to keep their students motivated, engaged, and learning (as well as fed, entertained, and supported in coping with the traumas of this "new normal"). How can we create routines that allow us to help our kids with assignments and virtual classes? Part I of this two-part webinar session will offer research-informed strategies that caregivers, social workers, educators, and advocates can implement to address some of the common challenges that arise with schooling from home. Part II of this webinar will focus on practice and implementation of the practical tools for parents and caregivers introduced in Part I.
