We hypothesize that the results will demonstrate how specialized education can help youth feel more comfortable talking to parents, partners, and doctors about relationships and sexual health.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: explain how specialized sexual health education for neurodiverse populations affects the self-efficacy and self-image of those receiving the curriculum.
