Join Alexa & Jacqueline Child, co-funders of the Dateability app, to discuss navigating the dating scene as well as when/how to disclose to potential dating or romantic partners. The discussion will also include addressing common dating challenges that individuals face both with and without disabilities. This session will aim to provide attendees with strategies and confidence to enter the dating field.
