The guide also includes a sample letter to parents, suggested activities, a sexual knowledge test for students, acceptable behaviors test, and resources test. Also included is a list of disability consumer organizations, independent living projects in California, and an extensive annotated bibliography of print, film and other media resources for teaching family life education to the physically disabled.
