Relationships, sexual health and parenthood (RSHP) education in autism
About this event
Relationships, sexual health and parenthood (RSHP) education is a vital part of any person's life, but is often avoided or mismanaged when educating children and young people with autism.
This training workshop will look at the importance of RSHP education and help you gain confidence in supporting children and young people with autism.
- How autism may affect the way children and young people learn about sex and relationships
- Sex and the law
- The key milestones and topics that need to be tackled (i.e. puberty, consent)
- Case studies and practical tips to help boost confidence among staff.
"I thought Corrie was an excellent trainer. I found learning in depth about consent the most beneficial and will take this back to my work place." (Delegate, October 2018)
