Annette is a sexual health nurse and educator, with 28 years of experience, who has been a major part of the team to develop a series of resources to support parents and educators teach people with intellectual disabilities about all those intimate things which can be so hard to teach:
- Asking permission
- Safety in relationships
- Hygiene – showering and wiping your bottom
Wherever we’ve taken these resources, the response is the same – there is nothing else like them. As a British woman said “these are the resources I always wanted but they were never available” – now they are. And they’re enabling care-givers and parents to have conversations which are often difficult and provide valuable education.
The session is a time to learn how to get started with those difficult topics. It will include general information, will show some resources which can be purchased at the seminar, and there will be time for questions.
Who should attend: Parents, teachers, care-givers, teacher aides – anyone interested in the development of people with learning disabilities
