Health Education and Relationships through Theater (HEART)
What: All teens who participate in the study will take three surveys about what they know about relationships. Half of those teens will be randomly assigned to the no-cost social skills group.
Why: People with autism and/or intellectual disabilities may know less about relationships and take more time to learn about sexual health. Starting education early can build positive self-awareness and decision-making skills.
Where: Locations throughout greater Philadelphia.
When: Ongoing through fall 2020. We are currently enrolling!
Cost: Participation is free. Teens who complete the screening survey will receive a $10 gift card. Teens who enroll will get a $25 gift card for each survey they complete (up to three surveys).
