A unique aspect of the human experience is the variability of identities between each individual person and how these differences form diverse communities. Within the field of human services, it is vital to take into account the different characteristics and identifying factors that each person associates their true self with. While recognizing the differences that make a person who they are, it is important to acknowledge that those characteristics can increase challenges that they face in daily life with the potential to create barriers for receiving adequate support.
In this training, we will explore how sex, gender, and transgender identify affects people diagnosed with an intellectual and/or developmental disability (IDD). With a focus on the intersectionality of the transgender and IDD identity we will discuss how, as clinicians, we can provide maximum support while being mindful of each person’s individual experiences.
