I hope you are doing well. There's never a wrong time to start dating or thinking about dating. For individuals with developmental diagnoses, this process can be very scary, uncertain and confusing. Here's a quick infographic I've developed, which outlines the dating process. Anyone can use it, especially as a framework to help your loved one understand dating and what it means. Feel free to apply your own experiences with dating to the different steps to give concrete examples and make the steps relevant for the person you are working with. Everyone deserves to have a great relationship...good luck!
