The Tackling Teenage Training programme is an individual training programme designed to teach adolescents on the autism spectrum about sexual health issues.
It includes sessions on the following topics; discussing puberty, appearances, first impressions, physical and emotional developments in puberty, how to become friends and maintain a friendship, falling in love and dating, sexuality and sex, setting and respecting boundaries, and internet use.
These topics are all discussed and practiced in a structured manner with the adolescent in one-on-one training sessions.
