Understanding Adolescence & Puberty (Virtual): Summer 2022

 

The Understanding Adolescence and Puberty program aids tweens and teens with intellectual disabilities going through puberty—answering questions about the changes affecting their bodies during this time of their life.

Curriculum

Our curriculum “Understanding Adolescence and Puberty” is based on books by Terri Couwenhoven, M.S. (www.terricouwenhoven.com) who specializes in the design and implementation of sexuality programs and resources for people with intellectual disabilities and their parents who support them. We foster independence through activities that encourage curiosity and education in a safe environment.

All program materials will be shipped to participants on a weekly basis. Materials include books, class supplies and handouts.

Virtual Class Schedule

The Virtual Understanding Adolescence and Puberty program is a six-week program and classes meet once a week on Saturday. To provide the most relevant guidance on the changes and development that occur during puberty, sessions are separated by sex.
