Session Description

The purpose of the Sexual Health Special Interest Group (SIG) of AUCD is to connect people in the AUCD network to each other, and to resources about disability and sexuality. During this meeting, we will review highlights of our 2017 activities including: a) webinar introducing the Sexual Health & Disability Special Interest Group; b) survey and results: "UCEDD Survey: Sexual Health & Disability Efforts"; and c) survey distribution and potential panelists for webinar series: "Sex Talk for Self-Advocates". We will also invite members to share sexual health and disability highlights from their programs.

Special Interest Groups, or SIGs, are made up of individuals in the AUCD network who have a common topical interest. SIGs, which are open to anyone in the network including trainees, serve as a mechanism for sharing information, engaging in dialogue, and generating new ideas. SIGs are led by one or more individuals from the network (with AUCD staff support if needed); they typically meet in-person at the AUCD Conference and may share information via emails, conference calls, or webinars throughout the year. Because SIGs are driven by the interests of the AUCD membership, new SIGs may emerge while ones that have run their course may disband.
