Preparing for Periods for Girls | 2020

Preparing for Periods NDIS

A four-week course for girls and young women living with an intellectual disability and autism spectrum disorder on preparing for periods and managing puberty using the Preparing for Periods program.

Preparing for Periods is a program tailored specifically for girls living with intellectual disability and autism spectrum disorder, to help them understand their bodies and growing up. This program teaches practical skills using visual and conceptual tools to help prepare for and manage the physical, social and emotional changes that occur during puberty.

This program focuses on:

  • How bodies grow and change
  • Public and private body parts, places and behaviours
  • How to manage periods
  • Healthy and hygienic habits
  • Understanding the concept of consent
