Autistic youth and disabled youth in Canada are underserved with respect to access to comprehensive sexual health education and services tailored to their needs. The Enhancing Effective Sexual Health Promotion for Autistic and Disabled Youth project is funded by Health Canada’s Health Care Policy and Strategies Program (Sexual and Reproductive Health Fund). SIECCAN is developing two capacity-building toolkits to improve service provider knowledge and skills to promote sexual health and well-being among Autistic youth and disabled youth with physical disabilities. Each toolkit includes (1) policy guidelines, (2) a service provider guide, and (3) sexual health information sheets for youth.
