FREE WORKSHOP FOR ADULTS WITH A DISABILITY
This workshop supports adults (18+) with a cognitive disability or people on the autism spectrum to have greater understanding of sexuality and relationships.
Morning tea and lunch will be provided.
WHAT WILL WE LEARN ABOUT AT THE WORKSHOP?
The workshop offers limited spaces and are specifically for the person with a disability. Services may register up to 5 people with a disability (per table) accompanied by a support person or persons. Support workers will sit with the group and help to facilitate group learning. Or a person with a disability may register as an individual and come along with their own support person. Individuals will be grouped together to form one group per table. Support staff will need to be registered with the group- but their role is to support the people that they are accompanying. This workshop is non-gender specific and will contain adult themes.
