ABOUT INCLUSIVE SEXOLOGY

I Believe In Inclusivity

For far too long, people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) have not been included in conversations about sex and sexuality. But why? Sexuality is a basic human right that affects all people regardless of their ability. 

The goal of Inclusive Sexology is to provide education and counseling services to people with IDD and those who support them in order to help them lead healthy and happy social-sexual lives. 

In addition, Inclusive Sexology will work with organizations and school districts to provide innovative and in depth trainings. We will also develop curriculum and offer consulting services to help others better understand how to support the sexuality of people with IDD.

Inclusive Sexology strives to be as inclusive as possible and offers services to support people with any type of disability. At Inclusive Sexology all sexual orientations, identities and relationship styles are celebrated.
