Objectives:  At the end of the presentation, attendees will be able to:

a. Describe the complexity of choice and control people with disability face with occupations associated with dating, sex, and reproduction

b. Compare the rehab model and social model of healthcare to enhance sexual choice and control for people with disabilities.
