Sexuality education for students with developmental disabilities

Sexuality education for students with developmental disabilities is a curriculum designed for self-advocates and staff to teach a sexuality education series together as a team. Written by sexuality educators with decades of experience teaching individuals with disabilities, the curriculum offers three components: the manual, the curriculum, and the pre/post test packet. The manual comprises the first 22 pages of the book and includes information on setting up a class and discusses challenges that may arise. The curriculum makes up the vast majority of the book covering different types of relationships, communication, decision-making, anatomy, children, and more. Activity suggestions and handouts are the hallmark of these lessons. A 22-question test found at the end of the book can be offered prior to the lessons to gear the class toward the information they lack. The same test is given after the class is over to ensure the class was successful.
