Relationships, sexual health and parenthood (RSHP) education in autism
As part of our organisational response to the COVID-19 virus, Children in Scotland has adapted our training and events programme to a digital webinar format for the foreseeable future.
We may be running some of our scheduled events as abbreviated webinar versions, while others have to be cancelled or postponed until face-to-face training is possible again. Please keep an eye on our website, social media channels and Eventbrite page for updates.
If you've already booked onto any face-to-face training between now and later this year, please note that our Learning and Events team will be in touch with you should the arrangements change.
Our office is currently closed and staff will be working from home – you can contact the team using this email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
About this event
Relationships, sexual health and parenthood (RSHP) 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 looks at the importance of RSHP education and helps the attendees gain confidence in supporting autistic children and young people.
- 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.
