Special Education: Secondary F.L.A.S.H. Family Life and Sexual Health. A Curriculum for Grades 7-12.
This curriculum guide covers family life and sexual health (FLASH) in 28 lessonplans and is intended for special education students in grades 7-12. The curriculum is an adaptation of one developed for nondisabled students. Introductory material for the teacher offers guidelines on such topics as knowing one's state and local guidelines, planning a sexuality unit, preparing administrators and parents, responding to questions, and including the program in the student's Individualized Education Program. The lessons typically include specific objectives, materials needed, an agenda with several activities, sample communications to a "trusted adult," worksheets, and handouts. Topics addressed by the lesson plans include the following: the difference between public and private; self esteem; gender identification; families; friendship and dating; helpers, acquaintances, and strangers; nonverbal communication; assertiveness; asking for what you want; hearing "no"; saying "no"; decision making; touching; exploitation and getting help; anatomy; puberty; sexual health and hygiene; reproduction; pregnancy; parenthood; sexual decision making; birth control; germs and risk; sexually transmitted diseases; and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome; and resources. Seven appendices offer guidelines of Washington State, checklists, assessment tools, and resource lists. (DB)
