SPECIAL NEEDS

WORKSHOPS

All Ages

These workshops focus on a proactive approach to raising and working with a special needs child or youth. People with special needs are most at risk for sexual abuse and exploitation. Parents, caregivers and workers must acknowledge people with special needs as sexual beings. Our approach focuses on prevention, rather than intervention, so that all people can lead healthy, happy sexual lives.
