Teen Sexuality, ADD, and The Spectrum

Guest: Wes Crenshaw, author I Always Want to Be Where I’m Not: Successful Living with ADD and ADHD and coauthor of the forthcoming Consent-Based Sex Education: Parenting Teens in an Internet Age.

Dr. Wes Crenshaw says that a key point of adolescence is to organize one’s sexuality. For kids with ADD and those on the higher functioning autism spectrum, that can present unique challenges. If parents have a tough time dealing with sexuality in a typical teen, they may find themselves totally unprepared for what ADD and Asperger’s teens go through. That can include anything from impulsive sexual acting out to asexuality to fluidity in gender and sexual identity, and a lot more.

Dr. Wes Crenshaw is Board Certified in Couples and Family Psychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology. 

Dr. Wes is also coauthor of the forthcoming book Consent-Based Sex Education: Parenting Teens in an Internet Age.
