This poster will present the process and final product of an issue brief created by UCEDD and LEND staff and trainees at the Waisman Center, University of Wisconsin- Madison. We make the case for expanding current sex education curricula and materials to better support the learning needs of individuals with autism spectrum disorder. We include findings from a comprehensive literature review as well as recommendations for future directions.
