A Developmental Perspective on Sexuality: AuSM Skillshop presented by Logan Sand
The goal of this presentation is to provide information on healthy sexual development by discussing typical developmental milestones and what this means for parents, caregivers, and other caring adults. Participants also have the opportunity to practice responding to “teachable moments” to have discussions about healthy sexuality with the young people in their lives. This presentation will focus on healthy development for youth ages 0-18, but these teachable moment conversation skills can also be applied with adults that you care for or help support.
