Sex-Ability Workshop for Support Providers
We understand that people with developmental disabilities are often left out of conversations around relationships, sexual health and decision making. Additionally, those with developmental disabilities experience a significantly higher rate of sexual assault, unplanned pregnancies and STIs.
At SHORE Centre, we are committed to providing accurate, accessible information to all members of our community. After engaging in a community consultation process, we used participant feedback to inform the development of “SexAbility” – a Sexual Health Program for people with developmental disabilities consisting of weekly workshops.
We also recognize that parents, caregivers and support staff are essential to those they care for. We provide support and education to increase your knowledge and comfort in talking about and teaching sexual health.
This workshop is intended for support providers and caregivers who work with people with disabilities and want to learn more about how to support the people they support with healthy sexuality and relationships. Other events we organize are intended specifically for adults with disabilities – see our events calendar for more information.
