BONUS 7 - Sex Education for Individuals with Developmental Disabilities w/ Katherine McLaughlin

This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Katherine McLaughlin of Sexuality and Developmental Disability Workshops, creator of a sex education curriculum for individuals with disabilities.  We talk about how she came to this topic, the process of developing her curriculum, the challenges educators face in bringing up sex education, and why it's about time sexuality is being discussed in special education.  More information about Katherine and her curriculum can be found here.
