Meet the SDC:

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. There are many ways we can do this, through research and education. 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.
