Sexuality and Dating @ DSG : Offered April 7th from 6-8 PM
Dating can be brutal, no matter who you are. We’re all susceptible to the nervous excitement of new attraction, the giddiness, and the heartbreak that often accompanies the search for love and connection. These feelings and experiences are no different for many adults with Down Syndrome leading active, and fulfilling romantic lives. Small group discussion will be inspired by Terri Couwenhoven, an author and sex educator specializing in creating programs and resources for people with intellectual disabilities.
