I had a great time in Rockford at The Birds and the Bees workshop. I always feel like I learn so much each time I do a workshop. I got to meet a lot of interesting folks and I hope people walked away with a few things to think about. One thing that people asked for was some video showing what education might actually look like. I haven’t been able to find a great video yet, but I did find a web series that is really interesting called “The Specials”. It is made in the UK and follows five young adults as they transition out of school and into a group home. It is really interesting and touches on topics of sexuality. Worth checking out. http://www.the-specials.com/episodes
Unfortunately- the website just has excerpts from the show and the DVDs aren’t available for purchase yet in the US. The excerpts are rather long and sometimes the full ones pop up on You Tube so keep an eye out.

I have been utilizing The Specials episodes in my sexual health class. The videos are no longer available to watch on line for the U.S. and Canda, as they will soon be broadcast on television in the U.S. and Canda. As of right now, the website is not saying who will be broadcasting, but to stay tuned to The Specials website to find out when they will be available on television. It is a wonderful program and it has brought a smile to my clients who were able to watch a few of the episode online.
Thank you so much for this update! I can still watch season 1 here http://www.the-specials.com/episodes.
