Introducing the newest member of our workshop family… iKid!

Presented by Saleema Noon Sexual Health Educators, iKid is a playful, engaging and interactive empowerment workshop that teaches 5-8 year old kids the practical skills to create a respectful, kind and playful school environment. In a style that resonates with the younger crowd, creator and facilitator Ashley McIntosh takes the role of the fun older sibling, giving kids the information and skills needed not only to feel great about themselves but to rock their friendships for years to come.

About Ashley

As a facilitator and Program Manager for Saleema Noon’s team, Ashley has used her expertise in the curriculum development of all of our workshops. Seeing first hand the benefit of teaching key iGirl and iGuy concepts both in the classroom and at home as a parent led her to create our newest workshop, iKid, for primary-aged students. She is thrilled that she can now follow the kids she works with throughout their entire elementary school career.

Not sure what – or how much – information to share with children and teens regarding sex and sexual health? Do you fear what they might ask? Or how to respond to their questions? Or whether you even know the “answers” yourself?

Saleema Noon knows all about these fears and concerns. An expert in sexual health education and stepparent to two teenage daughters herself, she understands the challenges adults face when addressing sensitive topics with their kids.

In Talk Sex Today, Noon delivers an intelligent and sensible blend of current, inclusive, and practical information for children and teens – and the adults who love them. Noon builds on the foundational work of iconic sexual health educator Meg Hickling and her bestselling Speaking of Sex books to offer adults a break-through guide on teaching “body science.”

Body ScienceA friendly voice of reason above the chatter, Saleema Noon Sexual Health Educators is a group of smart and current sexual health professionals with a focus on safe, practical, inclusive content. We give parents concrete tools with which to answer even the toughest questions. In our work with elementary and high school students we reinforce the positive, meaningful messages parents have communicated to their children and teens. With good information and a youthful, fun, approachable delivery, talking about sexual health has never been easier.

Saleema really does an amazing job with the girls, and [our daughter] is so comfortable to talk to us about stuff I would have never been able to discuss with my parents when I was her age.

I liked how you gave info straight up, without giving long boring dictionary explanations.
