Banchero Disability Partners has offered a relationship class to our clients and other community members since 1993. The class teaches the fundamentals of building friendships and loving relationships. It covers safety awareness, sexual assault prevention, how to create and maintain friendships, and how to improve communication in all relationships. Class members learn how to ask someone on a date and the practices of safe sex. Other topics include anatomy, body language, and cross- cultural communication. The Relationship Class is open for a small fee to all adults who have developmental disabilities.
