SEXUALITY AND STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
A Workshop for Educators, Parents and Service Providers
February 12, 2019
La Quinta Inn & Suites,
3 Centerpointe Dr., La Palma
4:30 to 7:30 PM
With a background as a nurse, educator, special needs parent, neuropsychologist, and a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, Dr. Mary Joann Lang brings a wealth of informed experience to her roles as Founder/CEO of Beacon Day School for Children with Autism and Related Disorders, and founder/executive director of Beacon Life Project (nonprofit). Dr. Lang has also served as a professor in the Department of Counseling and School Psychology at Azusa Pacific University as well as currently on staff as adjunct faculty with Argosy University. Dr. Lang will address an issue that is often controversial but can’t be ignored: sexuality and the disabled. She will discuss how students with disabilities are challenged in dealing with the sensory, conceptual, and communicative aspects of their own sexuality and sexual relations with others.
Workshop is presented at no charge but registration is required to insure proper number of materials and refreshments for attendees. Due to room size, attendance will be limited to the first seventy-five registrations received.
