**This course will provide the participant with 1.5 Ethics Learning Type BACB® CEUs**
Description of Learning Type CE Event: We know how important it is to teach boundaries, self-advocacy, and sex education to our clients, but where do we begin? Toilet training is a great entry point to incorporate sex education into behavioral skills training. In this course, you will learn about the importance of implementing sex education programming with individuals with disabilities, alongside a direct application into toileting skill acquisition. If you’ve never done toilet training with a client, this is a great place to start. If you’ve been doing it for years, this is a great place to enhance the ethics of your practice.
