Detailed Description

Who should attend

Individuals with social emotional learning differences and/or challenges report ongoing struggles with insight into social-sexual relationships and find the social communication involved in flirting and dating overwhelming—yet this topic is uncomfortable for many adult interventionists (parents and professionals) who also lack knowledge about how to inform individuals in a non-judgmental and helpful manner. In this course, we will address a range of topics including but not limited to culture, religion, emerging sexuality for neurodivergent social learners (especially those on the autism spectrum), pornography and the law, and how to teach different types of lessons for individuals with different social learning styles. We will provide many practical strategies and teaching tips developed with and alongside neurodivergent clients and family members. Attendees will receive a significant handout packet to encourage lesson development to help individuals meet their own social goals.


Other topics included in this course:


  • The blurred lines on topics such as gender fluidity, and the trifecta of challenges: religion, culture, and biology
  • Ideas for helping to develop stronger social awareness of others’ intentions to stay safe
  • Demonstration of how to use frameworks to explicitly teach about the concepts of flirting and dating (Relationship Pyramid)
  • Ideas for teaching about rejection self-management
  • Issues related to hygiene, eating in public, and other related social behaviors that may encourage or discourage the potential development relationships
