PEATC is very excited to announce our Sexual Health and Wellness Trainings and Workshop that we have coming up for students with disabilities and parents.  These events are designed to increase an individual's capacity for self-advocacy and decision-making and for the parent to help build these skills for their child.

Beginning on November 23, 2021, at 6:30 pm, we will begin our Winter Session for youth with disabilities.  The first three sessions are a part of a series that consists of ten sessions that cover important topics including healthy relationships, communication and consent, setting and respecting boundaries, self-esteem and self-acceptance, pregnancy and STI prevention, abuse prevention, and human anatomy.  The dates and topics for the winter session are:

  • November 23, 2021 – Consent and Body Rights
  • November 30, 2021 – Get Away and Tell
  • December 6, 2021 – Healthy Relationships 

Attached is the flyer for our Sexual Health and Wellness Series for Students.  Click to register for the Student Health and Wellness Virtual Sessions  Sessions will be conducted on Zoom.

On November 29, 2021, from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm at Churchland Branch Library in Portsmouth, VA, PEATC will conduct an in-person workshop, the “Let’s Talk About Sex” Workshop for parents.   Having conversations about puberty and sexuality can be uncomfortable for parents but these conversations are important when it comes to the health and safety of the child.  Parents know their children best and are the ones who determine when and what information their child needs regarding sexual health.  This training will provide information for parents/guardians and offer practical tools and strategies they can use on their child’s journey to adulthood. The flyer for the Parent Training is attached. Click to register for the Parent Workshop on Sexual Health and Wellness
