A Review of "Life Cycle: How We Grow and Change"
Digioia, Melissa Keyes
American Journal of Sexuality Education, v5 n4 p377-383 2010
Sexuality education curricula designed for youths with special needs are sparse. "Life Cycle: How We Grow and Change" (Vavricheck & Tolle, 2008) is a new curriculum by clinical social workers Sherrie Mansfield Vavricheck and R. Kay Tolle. Each chapter addresses a particular developmental stage between birth and death. Lessons within each chapter address the biological and psychosocial changes characteristic of the developmental stage, as well as feelings, privacy, touch, decision making, and sexual exploitation. Curriculum content, facilitator materials, and student handouts are discussed throughout the review.
