The Sexual Health and Healthy Relationships for People with I/DD Certification Program will provide the opportunity for professionals, caregivers, and family members to be equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to provide specialized support for sexual health to people with I/DD. By completing the entire certification program, participants will be equipped to support people as a sexual health advocates and provide quality training to others around the foundations of sexual health and development for people with I/DD.
