Sexuality and the Handicapped.
Glimps, Blanche E.
A review of the literature focuses on the sexual knowledge of handicapped and nonhandicapped adolescents and young adults. Results of studies are cited which show lack of conceptual information among physically handicapped, learning disabled, educable mentally retarded, and emotionally disturbed young people. Further, data are reported on the inadequate training many special education teachers receive regarding sex education training. Conclusions drawn include the need for systematic instruction in sexuality as part of the handicapped student's total education. Instructional approaches are recommended, including the use of multisensory strategies, concrete teaching, and reinforcement from peers. Annotated lists of approximately 20 sexuality books for parents and professionals and approximately 25 books for children and young adults about sexuality conclude the document. (CL)
