People with learning disabilities and/or autism, may be considering a transition from the gender they grew up with, to a gender role they feel more comfortable with. Indeed, the person may have made this transition. As it is the case with the general population, people with learning disabilities may be exposed to discrimination, abuse, ignorance and also faced with practical and emotional stresses linked with everyday life in their new gender identity.
The Webinar will focus on how people with learning disabilities and/or autism are supported to navigate these practical and emotional difficulties and signpost to networks that may benefit and support people further. The Webinar will also consider the accessibility of information and support to this group.
