LOVE ON THE SPECTRUM – SEX THERAPIST SHARE 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
