Occupational therapists, as well as other rehabilitation professionals, are aware that sexuality counseling is an important aspect of rehabilitation. However, occupational therapists have limited resources within their profession for training in this area. This paper describes the development, philosophy, goals, objectives, and format of the module “Sexuality and Disability” offered to occupational therapy students at Tufts University. Evaluations from the 288 students who have taken this module to date indicate that all students considered the module a pertinent part of their academic program. Other occupational therapy schools might wish to incorporate a similar component into their curricula to expand the resources within the profession for training in sexuality counseling.
