Being Human: A Resource Guide in Human Growth and Development for the Developmentally Disabled.
The resource guide is intended to help practitioners develop curricula in human growth and development for developmentally disabled students. A matrix guide is presented for evaluating clients in three domains (social identity, health and hygiene, and physiological identity). Behavioral indicators are then noted which relate to adaptive behaviors associated with psychosexual development. The next three sections list available information for training in the areas of social identity (such as relationships, decisionmaking, legal rights), physiological identity (including physical maturation, aging, pregnancy), and health and hygiene (nutrition, exercises, disease). Additional resources are provided along with a bibliography and publishers' list. (CL)
