ASHA Webinar: Updated National Sex Ed Standards: What’s Changed since 2012?

This webinar will provide an overview in the structural and content-related changes to the recently updated National Sex Ed Standards, released in March 2020. The webinar will outline the rationale for separating the high school grade band into two distinct sections (Grades 9-10 and Grades 11-12) and for separating gender identity from sexual orientation to create a new topical strand. With new advances in science and medicine, the webinar will share updates in content including sex trafficking, a greater focus on consent and integrating racial justice throughout. Participants will understand why K-12 students need to learn at least the minimum essential about sex education to protect their health and preserve their wellbeing and how professionals can use the updated National Sex Ed Standards to support educational systems delivering the sex education young people need and deserve.
