Incarceration & Developmental Disorders (Part 2 of 3)

Play Video

Deacon Larry Sutton, PhD, presents a town hall in this series on developmental disorders. He shares that once someone has been identified or thought to have a developmental disorder, it is important to not ‘assume’ they know or understand as neurotypical individuals and to work on skill development as a process towards rehabilitation. Healthy Relationships, a Guide to Adulthood, was written in part to set a framework of understanding for individuals with developmental disorders to assist with meaningful rehabilitation. This module focuses on Hygiene and Human Sexuality. Too often higher levels of rehabilitation are attempted (sex offender rehabilitation, for example) when the individual doesn’t have basic self-care skills or basic understanding of their own bodies.
