Episode 121: Love on the Spectrum – Sex Therapist shares her Tips

Have you been watching Season 2 of Love on the Spectrum? I love the show, and it’s such a good insight into the difficulties people with autism can face in the dating world. To take a closer look, this week on the podcast I’m joined by Counsellor and Sexologist from the show, Jodi Rodgers

What we discuss in this episode:

✅ What needs to be changed in the current sex education programmes in schools

✅ Step by step ways we can support kids on the Spectrum with having relationships  “Girlfriend/Boyfriend/Partner”

✅ How do we support and respect Autistic students to guide them through the ups and downs of relationships?

✅ How Jodi uses interests/knowledge to explain how to build relationships, i.e. “Clark Kent & Superman”

✅ How to quickly build a relationship/rapport
