Are you a sexuality or health educator looking to broaden the scope of your knowledge? Are you a self-advocate interested in accessing resources for your organization to approach and discuss sexuality? Join The Sexuality and Intellectual/Developmental Disability Community Forum for a roundtable discussion about sexual health advocacy, talking to families about sexuality, and sharing resources related to sexuality education.
