Resource: Sexual Health Resource Toolkit for Parents and Caregivers of Youth with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
This toolkit was created to (1) raise parents’ and caregivers’ awareness about the importance of discussing sexual health topics with their youth, (2) give them some tips to guide these conversations, and (3) provide additional resources for those who want more information. The toolkit is also intended to help organizations serving youth with intellectual and developmental disabilities to connect with and support the parents and caregivers of the youth they serve. It provides resources to share via social media and email on parent-child communication, adolescent development, sexual assault, and internet safety. The toolkit includes social media memes, audio files, and informational snapshots that can be shared by and with parents. Learn more.
