Show Notes

Masturbation, erections, orgasms, puberty and sexual relations are NOT taboo in this podcast episode!! We cover it all in an open conversation with Nelle Francis, special needs educator and mum to a 29-year-old autistic son. We talk about how puberty presents in both girls and boys on the spectrum, common vulnerabilities, how to initiate these difficult conversations with your child (because they need to know the facts!) and practical strategies to support your child during these major life transitions. Above all, Nelle will give you SO many things to think about…..things you have never even considered! Join us – not matter what age or stage your child is at….trust me, you need to hear this!
