In this episode (Part 1 of 2), Saleema talks to Jessica Wollen, a sexual health educator specializing in teaching kids (and their adults) with disabilities. They talk about how we can convey positive messages about sexuality and relationships to neurodiverse learners and answer the questions that are top of parents’ minds: Do I need to teach my child the same things a “typical” child learns? How can I break down the information in a way they understand? What if puberty isn’t on their radar yet, should I still talk about it? How can I support them to foster healthy relationships growing up? And what about keeping them safe online when I’m not there with them? There’s so much juicy goodness in this interview we had to divide it into two parts...tune in to soak it all up!
