Description

This essential manual helps educators comfortably and knowledgeably bring comprehensive sex education to the special education classroom.

Drawing on first-hand experience and real world examples, the first half provides background material, including common roadblocks, and tools for how to effectively partner with parents. The second half breaks down the how-tos of implementing a successful sex education program and troubleshoots tricky situations that might come up in the special education classroom.

Written in accessible, person-first language, this guide equips you with best practices for providing students with developmental disabilities with the knowledge and tools to engage in healthy relationships and live full lives as self-advocating sexual beings.
