Workshops for Families and Professionals
In 2009, Penn Autism Network & ASCEND Group presented a workshop on autism and sexuality that was attended by more than 100 professionals, family members and individuals with autism. PAN's Workshop, "Autism, Asperger Syndrome & Health Sexuality: An Advanced Workshop for Professionals", took place on Monday & Tuesday, June 28-29, 2010. Author of Asperger's Syndrome and Sexuality: From Adolescence through Adulthood, Isabelle Hénault, PhD, was the presenter. The conference offered 12 workshops which aimed to elaborate on strategies to improve the social and sexual skills of adolescents, young adults, and older adults with ASD.
Coming Soon! PAN will offer a week-long intensive workshop on this topic. Details will be announced shortly.
