Devlin, Sandy; And Others
The Project Prevention curriculum is specifically designed for the prevention of substance abuse among students with disabilities and was piloted in 10 classroom serving students with mild, moderate, and severe disabilities. This component of the curriculum is intended for elementary students and includes four sections with a total of 81 lesson plans which address: (1) self-esteem; (2) social skills; (3) decision making; and (4) drug awareness. Although the activities are designed to be implemented in sequential order, a teacher can also use individual activities which best suit the students involved. Each unit is preceded by a letter to parents explaining the unit and ways parents can help. Information provided for each activity includes recommended time allotment, needed materials, procedures, and worksheets or handouts. Examples of activities include: becoming aware of individual uniqueness and specialness, understanding friendship, identifying decisions students make daily, and learning about the effects of drugs on behavior. A glossary defines terms. A bibliography lists 28 related children's books. (Contains 15 references.) (DB)
