Sex Education Programs for People with Mental Retardation.
McCabe, Marita P.
Mental Retardation, v31 n6 p377-87 Dec 1993
Evaluation of data on the sexual knowledge, needs, and experience of people with mental retardation found an unmet need for sexual knowledge, caused partly by the largely negative attitudes of caregivers and parents about the sexuality of these individuals. Available sex education programs were found to be generally inadequate and unproven. (DB)
