Education for People with Disabilities

Planned Parenthood recognizes that people with disabilities have unique sex education needs. People with disabilities experience a disproportionately high rate of sexual assault and often lack access to the sex education they both need and deserve.

Our lessons are modular and adaptive. They are designed with attention to cognitive, emotional, social, and physical concerns of each group.
