About the Author

Terri Couwenhoven is a sexuality educator who works with people who have intellectual disabilities and Clinic Coordinator for the Down Syndrome Clinic of Wisconsin at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.

Everyone knows that dipping your toe in the dating pond can be a little intimidating without first seeking some expert advice! And that's exactly what Terri Couwenhoven delivers in her new book written expressly for teens and adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities. Boyfriends & Girlfriends explains the dos and don'ts of dating and validates their normal, age-appropriate desire for companionship and romance.

The book covers the biggest questions and smallest concerns of every would-be dater, including:

  • Who is an appropriate dating partner & who is not
  • How to read signals & judge whether the interest is mutual
  • How to ask someone out on a date
  • How to turn down a date
  • How to handle rejection
  • What sexual feelings are
  • How to work through problems in a relationship
  • What to do when a relationship is not working
Written and illustrated for a hi/lo reader, Boyfriends & Girlfriends is perfect for anyone who is already in a relationship, ready to start one, or still only dreaming about it. The guide is also an informative read for parents, counselors, and other support providers.
