Webinar 2/17 - Asperger's Syndrome and Sexuality: From Adolescence to Adulthood

From AANE.org
The Asperger/Autism Network

January 12, 2014

This webinar examines the intimate relationships of individuals with Asperger's Syndrome (AS) and related profiles. It is intended for parents, professionals, spouses, and individuals with AS from adolescence to adulthood. In a relationship, the expression of traits and behaviors linked to AS vary according to several factors such as prior experiences, self-disclosure, acceptance of the syndrome, quality of communication, family situation, mutual support, and partner motivation.

This webinar will explore issues such as development, intimacy, empathy, sexual desire, commitment, and safety.
