Growing Special and Free To Say No to HIV. HIV/AIDS Preventative Education.
Iowa State Dept. of Education, Des Moines.
This curriculum guide is written to provide special education teachers with a model for teaching students about the prevention of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). It is noted that special education students may be at risk for contracting the virus because they are often vulnerable to high-risk behaviors in an effort to belong to a peer group. Teaching activities include using anatomically correct dolls, photographs, and drawings to put the education on a more concrete level of thinking for mentally handicapped students or for those unfamiliar with the English language. Although no grade level is given, most of the concepts are appropriate for students who are in various stages of puberty. Accompanying the suggested activities are statements of objectives, suggested materials, and resources needed. (JD)
