Sexual health resources

Sexuality education addresses a number of topics such as private and public, touch and boundaries, social skills, relationships, puberty, sexual activities, decision making, health and safety.

Over the years, Sunny Hill has developed a number of educational kits and workshops for parents, caregivers, professionals and the general public. Much of the information included in these workshops are now available from this site. These guides, written for both parents and professionals, provide an overview of basic sexuality issues and education concepts along with practical strategies and resources to support healthy sexual development and prevent abuse for children and young people with disabilities.
