Vision and mission
Parents of children with autism spectrum disorder and intellectual disability are often unsure about when they should start teaching their child about puberty. Some parents might be concerned about jumping in too early or too late, while others may be concerned that puberty information is too complex for their child.
For many parents, it’s not always easy to find the right information to meet their child’s complex needs. That’s why we created Planet Puberty.
How Planet Puberty can help
Planet Puberty has information, worksheets, videos, games and strategies to help parents navigate their child’s puberty journey. It includes a website, webinar series and podcast.
On Planet Puberty, we take a holistic approach to puberty. That’s why we cover five key topic areas:
- The body
- Feeling good
- Keeping safe
Planet Puberty offers information at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels, so parents can find the level of information that is right for their family.
