    Autism and Developmentally Appropriate Sexuality
    Presented by: Frank Cicero, Ph.D., BCBA

    Sexuality is a topic that is difficult, or at least uncomfortable, for many parents and professionals to discuss.  However, it is a topic that will ultimately be an issue for many individuals on the autism spectrum. This talk will begin with an overview of background issues regarding sexuality in ASD.  We will discuss topics such as sexual development, sexuality knowledge, sexual behaviors and common parent concerns. We will then discuss strategies for teaching important social skills related to sexual expression as well as teaching methods for sexual behavior such as masturbation and personal hygiene.  Audience questions will be welcomed.
