The SDC is a group of people working together to support people with disabilities.
Our goal is for people with disabilities to have healthy sexuality and relationships that they choose.
We provide training for people with disabilities, their families, and the professionals who work with them.
We pay extra attention to the needs of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities because there is so little information that is accessible to this community.
What’s unique about us
We work with the larger disability community with a particular focus on people with I/DD since this is a group that is often overlooked. We’ve found that there’s a great need for more education, research, and resources for people with I/DD and we’re working to close this gap.
people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to speak up and get educated about sexuality
to what people with I/DD are saying they want and need and try to address this in our work
that sexuality is a natural part of each person and should be celebrated
A partner in advocacy
We emphasize partnerships with disability community organizations and advocacy groups. Our focus has been on promoting sexuality education for people with I/DD that is both accessible and meaningful.
Self-advocacy plays a central role in our approach as we incorporate these values into all aspects of our work.
