Sexuality among Adolescents with Moderate Disabilities: Promoting Positive Sexual Development
Harader, Dana L.; Fullwood, Harry; Hawthorne, Melissa
Prevention Researcher, v16 n4 p17-20 2009
Adolescents with moderate disabilities are not being given vital information regarding their sexuality and ways to behave responsibly with their peers. This article examines the laws that govern the education of all persons with disabilities, how societal norms and attitudes have contributed to this lack of sexuality knowledge, how these adolescents are often victims of inappropriate sexual beliefs and attitudes, and how professionals can work effectively with these youth to promote positive sexual attitudes and behaviors. (Contains 1 box and 1 table.)
