The Impacts of Disordered Sensory Processing


Presented by Stephanie Mitelman, MA, CSE, CFLE

Tuesday, October 13, 2020

Sexuality uses most, if not all of the senses. For individuals with different sensory profiles, this can pose some challenges. This webinar will explore how the different senses affect sexual behavior and interaction, and seek to give participants some solutions and a better understanding of how to adapt for sexual needs.

This will be presented live via webinar on October 13, 2020 and a recording will be available for later access. When purchased, the link for webinar attendance will be given 24 hours before presentation.
