Website Description

"Planet Puberty is a digital resource suite by Family Planning NSW that aims to provide parents and carers of children with intellectual disability and/or autism spectrum disorder with the latest information, strategies and resources for supporting their child through puberty.

Planet Puberty was co-designed with adults with intellectual disability and/or autism spectrum disorder across Australia who guided the design and development of the project at all stages. We worked closely with parents and carers to create a resource that provides relevant and useful information to help parents and carers support their child through puberty. We thank all these people for their time, feedback and contributions."
