Being a boy these days can be tough.
There’s peer pressure, trying to figure out what it means to ‘be a man’, body hair, deeper voices, the onslaught of social media and just trying to fit in.
If that wasn’t enough to deal with, being a boy with autism or a developmental issue can make these issues even more challenging.
This is why we created Being Boys
This program will focus on a range of topics relevant to boys who are nearing, or are in the early puberty years – such as;
- the body changes that boys and girls go through during puberty.
- understanding of the reproductive system
- personal hygiene and self care
- hormonal changes of puberty – and how these can affect us physically and emotionally.
- navigating friendships, peer pressure and ‘being a man’
Being Boys is our puberty education program for boys with autism, aged 8 to 12.
This program is suitable for boys who are nearing, or are in the early puberty years and want help to navigate the tricky changes that their bodies are exhibiting.
