Event Type


A webinar providing parents and professionals strategies for teaching individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) about healthy relationships and sexuality

Join Connect to Community for “Healthy Relationships and Sexuality” on Nov. 19 from 11 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.

The desire to love and be loved is universal, but the myths and misconceptions surrounding people with I/DD often lead to rules and restrictions that make healthy relationships difficult to obtain.

Presenter Susan Kahan, a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and Psychotherapist at the University of Illinois Chicago with a focus on developmental disability and trauma, will provide participants with tools and strategies for teaching individuals with I/DD about healthy relationships and sexuality. She will also cover the role that this plays in preventing sexual abuse.

Register on the Connect to Community website by Nov. 17.

Participants will receive a Zoom link before the event. If you do not receive the link, please email
