Share Sexuality and Sexuality Instruction with Learners with ASDs

Event Details

Individuals on the Autism Spectrum are sexual beings.  However, individual interest in sex or in developing an intimate sexual relationship with another person varies widely across (and within) individuals at all ability levels.  Unfortunately, despite much discussion about decision-making skills in the self-determination literature there continues to be “lack of evidence [supporting the] effectiveness of sex education and training for persons with developmental disabilities” (Duval, 2002) which behavior analysis can provide.  This workshop will provide a brief overview of issues associated with sexuality education and the role behavior analysis can play in this complex and important area.  Presented by Peter Gerhardt, Ed.D.

Onsite check-in begins at 8:30 a.m. Coffee and light refreshments will be available. The presentation will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m.

No refunds will be issued after October 1, 2013.  Substitutions may be made.


Peter Gerhardt, Ed.D., serves as Chairman of the Scientific Council for the Organization for Autism Research, is on the Editorial Board of Behavior Analysis in Practice and on numerous professional advisory boards, including the Autism Society of America. Dr. Gerhardt has more than 30 years experience utilizing the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis in support of adolescents and adults with autism spectrum disorders in educational, employment, and residential and community-based settings. He has authored and co-authored articles and book chapters on the needs of adolescents and adults with ASD and has presented nationally and internationally on this topic.
