The Guild uses Elevatus Training to enable people with developmental disabilities to lead sexually healthy lives.
In 2022, staff and families will be trained in the Elevatus curriculum to increase their skills and comfort level when addressing sexuality with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This will allow families and individuals to give informed consent including previewing material to student participation in sexual health curriculum as it is rolled out after staff and family training.
Last fall, Guild staff lead a group of six Guild adult residents through Elevatus’ Healthy Relationships course. The courses empower individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to build self-confidence and maintain healthy relationships.
